Objective. To identify sources of pressure, individual differences and effects of stress in Mexican CIO's of enterprises with the Pressure Management Indicator (PMI). Method. Descriptive research, no experimental design, with 41 participants. It was used a questionnaire integrated with 111 items using Likert scale. Results. Mexican executives work around 53 hours per week and they do not consider it as a source of pressure. However, they consider personal responsibility, daily hassles, recognition and home/work balance as a cause of it. Evidence shows that Mexican CIO's do not pay attention to organizational climate and do not receive social support as a help to cope work stress.
