The aim of this study was to identify the symptoms of stress and to establish gender differences in stress symptoms. We tried to find out if there are gender differences in the stress level at work, if there are gender differences in terms of stress symptoms frequency, and if there are gender differences in terms of the intensity of experiencing stress symptoms. In this study 85 randomly selected managers from Slovene companies participated. The results of the study have shown that there are gender differences in terms of all the above mentioned factors, namely a statistically higher level of stress in women. In terms of stress symptoms occurrence there are gender differences in some stress symptoms as well as in the intensity of experiencing stress symptoms.
