This study aims to investigate the impact of work environment on employees' job satisfaction in Saudi banks. Two dimensions of work environment were selected: empowerment and relations with co-workers. The data of the study were collected by a self-administered questionnaire distributed randomly using simple random sample. Descriptive and inferential statistical analyses were performed using SPSS program. The first part of the findings was the descriptive statistics of the socio-demographic characteristics of the respondents using frequencies, percentages, means, and standard deviations, while the second part being the statistical analyses of the impact of the work environment variables on employees' job satisfaction using simple regression. All the study hypotheses related to work environment were supported and concluded that there is a significant effect of work environment, empowerment, and co-workers relations on the employees' job satisfaction. One of the hypotheses of the impact of socio-demographic characteristics was supported while the others were rejected. The findings of the study led to many recommendations. The most important of these were that The Saudi Electricity Company in Tabuk should communicate its vision to its employees', and provide its employees with the needed resources to execute their jobs successfully. In addition, they should focus on the coordination among the various divisions of the company.
