    I worked at Trafigura full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Huge potential globally, can travel, great people, decent salaries.

    Cons

    IT is completely different from the rest of the company. The management comes from banking and brimgs with it all the problems and work culture banking IT has: slow, no decisions taken when they should, opaque processes, "the blame game", constant change of direction aimed to preserve jobs as long as possible, etc. There are top managers that don't deliver (and have not for years) but they are agile politicians and manage to stay, etc. Now they outsourced the IT to India (funny, everyone else is coming back since we all know that doesn't work well) to get short term gains (lower salaries) and so the IT management can keep their jobs one more year. It is very difficult to evolve because the IT management is self-centered and in a self-preservation mode.
