The IT & C industry is leading among the top Romanian employers, according to a to a ranking by, a community of Romanian employees with 350,000 members. Microsoft Romania, Oracle Romania and Zitec take the top three positions as they are among the most beloved companies by their employees.

In contrast to 2017, Microsoft Romania climbs to the top of the list; Oracle drops to second, and Zitec has a remarkable climb to third place for top employers, a spot that was taken last year by IBM Romania. The working environment, salary offers, the quality and scale of projects, collegiality, work schedule, headquarters, management – these are just some of the criteria analyzed by Romanian employees to determine the top 2018 employers. 

“Anyone who listens to the Romanian employers’ or HR representatives’ discourse must have noticed that it has changed over the past year. New employee waves relate differently to their jobs and can change perceptions even for older generations. For this reason, we believe that in 2018 employers were more concerned about the way and the constancy with which they communicated with the labor market. We’re facing a labor crisis in many industries, and employers have concluded that the differentiating factor can no longer be the salary, but the organizational culture. And communication of organizational culture can not only be done by the company, but by those who live it, i.e. the employees. Therefore, this year’s top is the voice of the employees of the most powerful companies in the market,” said Costin Tudor, the founder of the platform.
