      I worked at Mercuria Energy full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Work alongside talented traders. Very flexible and opportunistic organization with a flat hierarchy. Good office location. Good work/life balance.

      Cons

      A cutthroat environment with limited career development opportunities. Salaries and comp package well below market rate with no/limited progression (especially if you are not a trader). Anyone else working outside core trading business is a second-class citizen.

      Pros

      Chill lunch, 2hr or more... Full autonomy on your task Higher pay relative to industry

      Cons

      Was NEVER invited for team meetings, hence learning nothing in the process Felt tense when approaching your manager for help or just to understand the workflow Discriminates across ranks.... non important staff treated like dirt although they are also part of the value chain of improving the work process (otherwise the traders have more to do! Avoid at all cost if you are just starting out.... great if u know your...

      I worked at Mercuria Energy full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      There are some good people there and relatively fun atmosphere.

      Cons

      No opportunity to advance. Poor management that take no responsibility for problems. Pay that never increases despite having stellar peer and manager reviews. Very poor ethics of traders.

      Advice to Management

      Hire traders that have a conscience. Promote from within and give US employees a chance instead of hiring people from other countries. Reward people for working hard. Using an excuse of "just be glad you didn't get a pay decrease" is not an incentive to stay.

      I worked at Mercuria Energy full-time

      Pros

      Learn a lot because of fast-paced environment, bonuses are great for upper management etc. Health insurance benefits are good, relaxed laid back culture- friendly and casual

      Cons

      Pretty cutthroat, they value performance over everything. Salaries are low, and people hold out for bonuses. Very short staffed in some departments leading to poor operations and sometimes costly errors

      Advice to Management

      Focus more on mid-level talent, they are the backbone and the future of the organization. Don't look at everyone as a need filler
