  • Abstract In year 2013, the death of Hung Chung-chiu has severely hit military reputation and it has also affected the voluntary military recruiting system by lowering the rate of troops’ recruitment to fifteen percent. Thus, the Ministry of National Defense, in order to solve the problem, decided to extend the voluntary military system to 2017 instead of 2014. The shortage of new recruits has made senior soldiers to become an important pillar in the military.
     Only few researches have already analyzed the attitudes toward soldiers and therefore, we firmly believe that our research can fill the gap of the literature in this area.
     Our analysis has been conducted by collecting 180 valid questionnaires from Tsoying Navy lieutenant-level officers. In order to discover the relationship between career plateau and withdrawal behaviors, we used five measurements: job characteristics, perceived organizational support, professional plateau, subjective career plateau and withdrawal behaviors.
     Our results showed that, job characteristics (in task identity, job feedback) and perceived organizational support, are both significantly negative related to career plateau. We have also found that, there is a significant relation between professional plateau and employee’s neglect & turnover intention. Finally, we have discovered an insignificant linkage between subjective career plateau and withdrawal behaviors. Further practical implications and suggestions are also discussed in this study.
