Abstract: The reason of this research was to investigate the thoughts about the current organizational culture of bank employees in Greece and to study what they want for organizational culture after five years. The sample consisted of 252 (51.7%) males and 235 (48.3%) females of various bank companies. The results of this research suggest that bank employees believe current organizational culture controls their behavior inside the bank while at the same time they would desire more friendly and adaptive forms of culture in the company in which they work for. Also, ANOVA analysis has shown that as far as the attitude is concerned, concerning the current organizational culture only the parameter of years of general experience as bank employees affect their attitudes, with employees with 1-10 years of experience ranks higher the current culture because it is characterized as hierarchical and less flexible and participative. As far as most wanted organizational cultures are concerned men and women sated different favorites, bureaucrats would like it to be more hierarchical and new employees would like it more to support involvement and adjustment to the exterior settings and less focused on the marketplace.
