This paper identified the factors that affect objective and subjective measures of career success. Objective measures included total compensation and rank level from the company president. Subjective measure was career satisfaction. The sample consisted of students in the MBA program of the University of the Philippines. Both organizational and individual factors influence career success. However, the different measures of career success have different determinants, and these three measures of career success are not correlated. One consistent finding in studies on career success using Philippine sample is that gender did not explain variation in total compensation, number of levels from company president, and career satisfaction. These null results have several implications. First, there exist income and status parity between female and male MBA students. Second, it challenges the generalizability of findings on gender differential in income, status, and career satisfaction common in studies based on samples from the United States and Europe.
