Abstract: Organizations exist and grow in the external environment, aspects of which in many ways tend to dominate and shape the internal work set up of the organization. Bound together in a complex interdependent network these factors interact with the members of the organization influencing their behaviour. Trying to analyze and understand this relationship between the internal work set up and the, organization members', the present study was initiated. Over the years as society changed, researchers, perspectives to the study of behaviour in organizations also changed. Though each pursued a different line of thought, the link was the different dimensions, organizational "technological environmental or, human, each considered individually to exert its influence on the individual. This vacuum eclectic approach for understanding .behaviour in organizations, necessitating the need for the study of climate. Organizational climate then is the set of prevailing attitudes held by individuals regarding the internal work environment characteristics of the specific organization, as perceived by them. Keeping the above in mind the objectives of the present study were, to assess organizational climate as perceived by the employees and to explore whether the different aspects of the varied dimensions of climate are related to one another; Being an exploratory study no specific hypothesis could be formulated. However to give direction to the study one working hypothesis was formulated-climate perceptions will be similar for both the units on all dimensions. The present study was conducted in lCF, a large public sector undertaking in Perambur at Madras. To accomplish the above objectives a structured interview schedule covering all 7 organizational dimension was made, pre-tested and used. Since the analysis provides evidence that the climate existing at the Integral Coach Factory is a positive one. Majority of the respondents perceive the different organizational dimensions favourably. Some of course do not, accounting for which could be individual/personal factors/circumstances and individual differences. However a few aspects of some dimensions are not seen favourably by most of the respondents, except a few. Accounting for these could be the above mentioned factors also. Though the respondents are not happy with these aspects, the point made towards these by the respondents stands out. The respondents accept them as they realize the " , managements limitations towards the same. They are aware that it is only the government who can make amends and also that changes made for them would precipitate a similar reaction in the other sister organizations. Nevertheless they say that where ever the management can improve, it should do so and not have a complacement attitude.
