We examine the effect of organizational ethics on the job satisfaction of information technology professionals in Poland, a transition economy. Three dimensions of the organizational ethics -- ethical optimism, corporate social responsibility, and top management action -- are investigated. The necessary data is collected by a survey conducted among 391 respondents in different regions of Poland. The results of this survey indicate that organizational ethics, in general, affect the job satisfaction of employees in transition economies. The highest job satisfaction seems to be in organizations where the top management propagate and enforce high ethical standards.
