This study examines strong organizational culture as a tool for management to control, motivate and enhance/improve employees’ performance in selected federal government tertiary institutions in Lagos mainland local government area of Lagos state. Structured questionnaire constituted the major instrument; it was administered on 120 employees of Personnel Departments of these institutions. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analysis. The response rate was 90 percent as only 108 filled questionnaires. The result showed that organisational culture is a two edged sword that can cut across both management and employees, and therefore should be encouraged if it will lead to productivity and increase on performance, if not, other means of achieving performance should be employed. This study indicates that organizational culture is ambiguous and can lead to closure of mind and restriction and reduction of autonomy. It also provides direction. Results were discussed and recommendations made on the findings of the study.
