Given the strong growth that has occurred in the last 10 years in the Romanian IT industry and the growing interest which is still continuing to be granted, there is a necessity in providing a better understanding of the major actors in the IT industry along with their behavior. The current paper will attempt to provide an accurate imagine of the existing situation, as the Romanian IT firms increasingly compete on the global market for clients and talented knowledge workers. The end goal is the achievement of a national ranking on the main criteria that the IT workers consider important in a potential employer, a classification of IT companies on various criteria deemed important by both employees and global customers. Finally, this methodology will provide a blue-print for the Romanian IT firms who want to improve their overall organizational culture and desire to compete on the international market for talent and customers.
