This paper examines the correlation between organizational culture, psychological contract and job satisfaction in the context of cooperation between employers and employees in a new social and economical environment. The empirical study is based on the analysis of the personnel survey data from thirteen St. Petersburg and Moscow companies. The typology of organizational cultures was evaluated using the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI) methodology by K. Cameron and R. Quinn (2003). Job satisfaction was evaluated using A. Meier's questionnaire modified for our purposes. The research shows that organizations with different types of organizational culture differ in the level of job satisfaction of employees. According to our data, market culture mainly creates the conditions for the satisfaction of self-affirmation needs; hierarchic culture, for the satisfaction of cooperation and safety needs; clan culture, for the satisfaction of respect needs; adhocratic culture, for the satisfaction of self-actualization needs. © 2010 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
