Today, Firm networks are receiving an increasing attention in China. However, little research examined the relationship of job satisfaction, organizational commitment and efficiency of firm networks, although some previous researches examined them in hierarchy firms, especially lack of empirical investigation. In this paper, 3 latent variables and 21 observed variables are conducted in structural equation model(SEM). We identify that ten observed variables is determinant in job satisfaction of firm networks, six observed variables in organizational commitment of firm networks, and five observed variables in efficiency of firm networks. Furthermore, it finds that job satisfaction of firm networks significantly contributes to organizational commitment and efficiency of firm networks. While, organizational commitment of firm networks plays partial intermediary role in the relationship between job satisfaction and efficiency of firm networks. Finally, the implications for alliance managers are also discussed.
