Abstract: The state referred to as burn-out syndrome is caused by various factors as disappointment from initial working ignition, long-time stress and others. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the rate of burn-out syndrome and the length of professional experience. Today the enormous pressure is recorded in the many professions. In this study as the objection of the research the managers from middle and top management in middle age from selected economy areas were chosen. The technique of questionnaire (standardized questionnaire Burn-out Measure – BM – psychological burn-out) was used. The sample of respondents in total 75 persons with return about 82.60% of questionnaires consists of representatives from bank and construction sector and health service. The groups of respondents with length of professional experience till 5 years (27.40 %), from 5 to 10 years (25.80 %), from 10 to 15 years (21.00 %), from 15 to 20 years (11.30 %), from 20 to 25 years (9.70 %) and over 25 years (4.80 %) were involved in the research. For processing of the primary data the methods of quantitative statistics were used. The values of BM were increased in respondents in the groups with the length of professional experience till 5 years and more than 25 years. The burn-out syndrome in these groups was not significantly confirmed. We suppose that raising values could have connection with initial enthusiasm of employees at the beginning of their career and in the group with the length of professional experience over 25 years with consecutive long-term psychological stress. It is very important to pause on existing state and to set scale of values in professional and private life. The obtained results will be interpreted within pedagogical process and will be used in further scientific and research activity. In practical level we will focus on preventive steps during psychical burn-out.
