    Economic Transformation Plan (ETP) has acknowledged that the accountancy professions are among the main characters in transforming Malaysia into a high income nation by 2020. However, there is a severe gap between the supply and demand of professional accountants in which Malaysia is required to boost the supply of accountants from 33,000 to 60,000 to meet the projected goal by 2020. The organizational culture in accounting firms is often being perceived as unfavourable which consequently lead to low job satisfaction among accountants. To bridge the deficiency gap, the job satisfaction among professional accountants has become a significant concern in Malaysia as it is the key driver for attraction and retention. Therefore, this experiment attempts to explore different organizational culture effects on the job satisfaction among the professional accountants. This study takes into account of knowledge sharing culture and four categories of culture in Competing Value Framework (CVF) namely clan, adhocracy, market, and hierarchy culture to address the concern of job satisfaction. Primary data is collected for this research by delivering self-administered questionnaire to a sample of 350 professional accountants in Malaysia accounting firms. The demographic profile of target respondents has been analysed in this study. Besides, the reliability and normality test, inferential analysis through Pearson Correlation test and Multiple Linear Regression analysis will be conducted to analyse the data collected from target respondents. This research attempts to contribute to Ministry of Human Resource Malaysia and Human Resources Management by providing insights into the need for changing the organizational culture in accounting firms to boost the job satisfaction among professional accountants.
