The topic of organizational culture appeared in the previous century and it is still popular nowadays. After the transition of our country to a market economy foreign companies with their traditional cultural features began to appear in the Russian market. These features are faced with the Russian values that led to a necessity of changing organizational culture models according to the peculiarities of the Russian mentality. In what manner they have changed? Are there any differences in corporate culture of different foreign companies operating in Russia? These questions led to this study, the aim of which was to compare the models of organizational culture of foreign companies operating in Russia.
