    I worked at Olam full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent company! This organisation will give very good opportunity to learn new things and all managers are friendly. Work pressure will be high on month end time and less work will be there rest of the month. Company has very good value and the comfort will not be there in any other company.

    Cons

    Nothing much to specify as CONS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are very good and keep up the good work.
