Abstract: Abstract Private higher education is a rapidly expanding part of Ethiopia’s higher education system. Investment in private higher institutions by Ethiopian entrepreneurs is continued to grow, but little is known about their organization and management in general, or the nature of work factors and employees commitment in particular. This study examines the impact of intrinsic, extrinsic, and equity factors of work on employee’s organizational commitment in two selected private colleges in Addis Ababa. The finding shows that instructors in private colleges were satisfied with intrinsic factors of work such as opportunity for achievement, challenging work, responsibility, and opportunity for growth and development. On the other hand, instructors were generally dissatisfied with extrinsic content of work such as salary, fringe benefits, incentives, job security, opportunity for training, and post employment security. Moreover, there was also structural inequity which is a perception of employees that they are required to do too much work for small pay. Consequently, employees were not committed to their organization which implies the availability of high turnover and lower performance. To build a viable work force for the success of the colleges and industrial peace, the colleges should invest in the long term goal of their employees and learn to balance their interest to earn a higher profit with those of their employees.
