My journey in Olam 1year 2 months I noticed that working with teammates and combined working with all departments is good. Involvement in every section and daily morning meeting keeps on knowing each section what was is going on.

Dislikes

As per talking about Instrumentation department the future scope where I am working is nothing more, but company is good. Here always the maintenance works are going on, to go for improvement regarding instrumentation is very less might be that will be the lack of development in my career growth to show upp. What were the improvements can done that already done in my one year journey in Olam.

Work

Here where I am working I am the one person for the Instrumentation related proboems, as per this I am giving my best what I conclude but the work is start boring because of lack of development/projects in the present plant.

Olam, being a multinational company it was great opportunity to work here. But in the field the team work and colleagues are really reliable and hard workers. Here every employee especially Indians are not dedicated in particular section, there will get he knowledge and controlling capability to handle other section also. The was the opportunity created in the Olam, it was the plus point for every person if we are positive mind.

Dislikes

HR responsibilities and management are not good in olam in this country. Too slow in arranging work permit/Visa process.

Work

Working in olam normally operations and maintenance work.. Doing my best and implementing ideas regarding safety measures

Good treatment with expats, all basic amneties provided in the house alloted including maid.Provided vehicle for official works, online appraisal system was introduced, good incentives are being given.
Work environment is okay but little bit cautious before joining in plantation projects becuase all plantation projects are filled with malaysians and indonesians so obiviously these people dominating all aspects.Rest is fine

Dislikes

Reporting system is not proper.So many people involve in the system.Confusion.

Work

Initially fine and later hectic.More work and more reports

Its a good company and it made me grow in difference areas of my carrier as it does not limit you in what you can do. Supervisors where very helpful in all areas.

Dislikes

There is too much favoritism. There are too many unqualified personnel in higher positions i.e. Cashier position, Stores and Operations.
Too much work but less pay. I had a colleague who used to sabotage my work and my supervisor could only listen to him being my head of department and this lead to loss of interest in my work.

Work

It was challenging but exiting. I loved my work so much but i got frustrated on the way with some decisions from management

There is openness and work culture is truly professional. Respect for one another truly exists. Appraisal system can be improved. Work-life balance is appreciable. Social interactions within the families is very good.

Dislikes

Career growth and opportunities are there but limited. No politics observed during my stay of 3 years with the company (contractual assignment).

Work

It was exciting. In fact my profile and work content changed dramatically as I got the exposure for different work content due to direct involvement of the Country Head in IVC.

Olam is good company since they do lotvos things the experience and exposure is good. However there is a dark side the work and life balance is totally mismatch. Work pressure is much accompanied by corporate politics. No training or skills development also the career stability is not guaranteed. Efforts are not recognised and appreciated only mistakes are kept in
Mind also no proper appraisal mechanism. In few words good for short term.

Dislikes

Politics is too much, no recognition and appreciation for efforts and delivers. No training or career development program

Work

We work 14 hours it is slave job
