    This paper aims to investigate the impact of HRM practices on employee satisfaction in the pharmaceutical companies of Bangladesh. A structured questionnaire was developed and distributed amoung 108 employees of four pharmaceuticals companies, whereas 96 employees answered rightly. Statistical tools like z test, mean and proportion analysis was used to assess the impact of HRM practices on employee satisfaction.
