As an intern, I got to learn a lot. My team mates were knowledgeable, supportive, knew what they were doing, were goals-driven and always helped clear my doubts. My personality developed drastically. I was assigned tasks whose criticality would be a little over what a normal intern would be assigned for eg. my project required me to research and negotiate with the new suppliers on a regular basis and know if our needs are met. Working with the final selected suppliers was fun. This taught me how to communicate with suppliers in the corporate world, both personally and over mails. Overall it was a great experience.

Dislikes

Month ends are a bit hectic. Working half Saturdays would be decent, but in fact, you only got Sundays for yourself. Timings are strict for interns, ten seconds late in swiping your id and you come under "not-so-punctual" category.

Work

My work was an exciting one. I had the opportunity to develop my personality, the way I communicate in the corporate world, learn new things, new technology, meet people from different backgrounds. It was all in all a wonderful experience.

Working in Godrej is like working for Government. So you can expect not much work pressure and enjoy job security. However, giving in this environment, there is a tendency to become incompetent and relaxed because it doesn't hamper your job stability. So guys, if you seek for an organization that gives you a competitive edge in learning and delivering then this may not be an organization you wish to work and grow. Just like the govt. orgn. you have housing facility. which is in the vicinity of your organization.

Dislikes

HR Policy is extremely biased and discrimination is at its epitome. There is a difference in basic policies like attendance, leave, medical benefits, etc. Everything is linked as per the position you work in. So overall you do not feel unified with the organization. You sense a colonial way of managing employees which is not cool. The middle & senior management lacks mentoring their subordinates which results in many operational employees remaining stagnant in their job profile, job rotation, etc.

Work

My work is a typical desk job. Doesn't involve traveling either.

As a fresher trainee i came to learn many things in this company. The best team work, superior guidance , an excellent learning and working environment . These all things have given me a better working experience, also it helped me to keep my work-life balance. They always give priority to take initiative while adopting new technologies and this is the thing that has made me fall in love with their working culture.

Dislikes

The only thing that I dislike in godrej is the hectic shift schedules and no working time limit in work pressures. Some time employees have to work even for 12-14 hrs instead of 8 hrs as their regular shift. Along with this they always evaluate performance of a team instead of evaluating individual's personal abilities that they really posses. Somewhere this thing makes a little slower growth of person in the company.

There is sense of job security. Owners are very concerned for their employees.

Dislikes

Laid back approach and ineffective HR. Poor Work-life balance as six days working, sometimes Sunday is also working though one is compensated with a leave but with lot of riders. Lack of clarity in going forward. Always keep on checking what competition is doing before coming to conclusions. There's is hardly any steps towards skill enhancement of workforce. Many of employees working beyond 20years are liability as compared to new talent. Too much concerned for documentation due to audit fear.

Work

Working in my department is challenging due to issues with newly introduced but ineffective ERP. Every now and then new KRAs are added without any additional support.

Working here with Godrej is like working in a family and people would cherish working with Godrej because of its culture and humanistic values, which have been built by the promoters. This has even been stated by People, who have left Godrej about two-three decades back and have been working with MNCs and other Organisations in US and other places.

Dislikes

Having worked for about 44 years (joined March, 1973 - not 1975 as there was no year beyond in your field), you can imagine what I would dislike - till last working with enthusiasm and commitment - without any much expectations.

Work

It all depends on Individual - working hours: Initially, it was 5 day week - 36.75 hours/week 1973-85 with many publilc holidays; later 45 hours - 1997 with NI Holidays; 48 hours /week with Public Holidays under Factories Act - your point is restricted

It is a company to retire from. If you are not too ambitious, this is the place to be.

Dislikes

The company helps no growth
There are a bunch of people in the inner circle and they are the ones who have joined the company many years back. Only inner circle can grow.
No learning opportunities except for a few chosen ones. The company gives a lot of importance to values, but it is only followed on paper. The company has stay quarters in Mumbai, again given to the ones with face value and not on the wait list. The owners are keen to take the company much forward, but are stuck with a top management that is only trying to extract more money. The rich get richer here if you know the tricks.

Work life balance is good. HR initiatives are good. Job security is very high.

Dislikes

MRP is decent, but growth in Purchase is very slow. The work pressure at Purchase dept is very high. New software infor implemented, but training not provide properly, system implemented is very old fashion. And work method also very old fashion, and slow. Higher ups are not open minded

Work

I am in Purchase dept. Always on the toes, and war footing work. In our division TOC is implemented, due to which very less inventory is carrying. Need to always maintain that inventory.

Stupid work life balance , especially locks division (Bangalore branch)..... stupid as hell no logic in anything ........worst is that they Recruit engineers for sales and expect them to perform as if we are some MBA'S .....they all are passion killers .....higher management to safeguard their own asses will Recruit you , exploit you and frustrate you ....and will force you to quit they cannot remove nobody once you get in but you will be so frustrated that you will quit for sure .....
They cannot sustain talent , workforce and channel partners too ....current management to be blamed now...

I get good knowledge of how all processes work. This company has helped me a lot in developing my interpersonal skills and develop new contacts. Has definitely helped me in understanding B2B industry well and how it works.

Dislikes

Work and life balance lacking. Exact job role is not fixed, tedious work which is irrelevant is required to be done which is somewhat unnecessary. Growth opportunities are very less.

Work

It is mediocre in a way. Somewhat work and life balance is lacking here.
