As you probably know already, Capital published the "Best Companies to work for" (Top companii pentru care sa lucrezi - in Romanian) about 2 days ago.
I found some very interesting stuff in that top, that I would like to point out.
First of all, it seems Oriflame is on the first position in the "best paying companies" top. But Ms. Monica Tatoiu, General Manager at Oriflame, says, in an interview in the same magazine: "There are no big differences between salaries in Oriflame. New employees earn about 6 million ROL and can go up to 8 million after a few months. Management personnel have salaries of about 2.400 - 2.600 EUR".
How does this sound? Best paying company hires new employees with 200 EUR and management has 10 times more and they declare "there are no big differences between salaries at Oriflame" ?? Weird.
Policolor is on the second position in the overall top. But, from the company's presentation, we can find out that the general environment in Policolor is very formal (the manager himself uses the word "formal" severeal times". And the final statement is very interesting: "For the employees who come to work by tram, we pay the monthly tram tickets. But, usually, our employees are payed good enough to come at work by their own car". Wow ! You are going to pay our tram ticket? Sounds great !!
3. Oriflame (again)
Oriflame, which is on 3rd position in the overall top, has a very interesting approach to human resources management. Here is the statement from Monica Tatoiu, General manager: "I embrace Stalin's (!!) theory: If you don't know, I will teach you; if you can't, I will help you; if you don't want, i fire you." How interesting....
This is just a few of the weird stuff in the "top companies to work for in Romania". We are looking forward for your input on more strange things you found out in Romanian companies.
