Examining the measurement structure of individuals' orientations toward work rewards, or "judgements about work." a concept central to the social psychology of work. despite extensive and sustained interest in the level of important attached to work rewards by major markers of social location such as birth cohort, social class origins, and gender, prior studies have not examined whether the same classification schema captures the underlying variation in judgements about work across these axes of social location. Drawing on five data sets, the authors examine the fit of models corresponding to the recently revived entrepreneurial-bureaucratic classification scheme with those corresponding to the dominant extrinsic-intrinsic classification schema across sub-groups of the population using confirmatory factor analysis. Findings offer only limited support for reconceptualizing judgments about work along entrepreneurial-bureaucratic dimensions but call for additional research on the deimensions of judgements about work that emerge under distinct conditions and across different groups.
