    The present study is aiming to analyze the organizational culture of the Romanian branch of a multinational company, by using two international well known models, in order to obtain a more complex representation of the organizational culture. Studies conducted by different researchers highlighted the differences of perception between peoples’ values in their society in relation with the values of their colleagues of different nationalities. Finally, these values influence the importance that people grants to work, leisure, family and social status. The research methodology will focus on determining the organizational culture of the selected company by using two international instruments: the Denison model® and Human Synergistics Organizational Culture Inventory®. The Human Synergistics OCI® will be used in to determine both the current culture and the ideal culture of the managers. The Denison Model® will provide a comprehensive image of the organizational culture by comparing the results with the Denison Normative Database. The research will try to identify patterns, behaviors and values that form the basement for a performance oriented company.
