    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values

    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Operations Analyst in Mumbai

    I worked at Trafigura full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to global trade world Very little micromanagement (may vary from team to team) You will love the work if you have a kick for numbers Chances of travelling abroad Free meals and travel facilities

    Cons

    Brutal hire and fire policy Stressfull work environment, may feel like you have a gun to your head all times Repetitive work, may start to feel like a dead end after few months Slow growth in every aspect (hierarchy wise, learning wise and financially)

    Advice to Management

    Try to make the company more employee friendly and flexible in terms of policies. Nobody likes a workplace which feels like school run by strict principles and teachers.

    the money they pay you is good. But beware

    Cons

    - Endless working hours - zero work life balance (the blackberry becomes an extension to your body) - Stress eating at cafeteria and all the free sugar drinks make you hate yourself - Personal vendetta run by higher ups in/outside of india

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to change their view that if they pay you the money they have right to your soul and every single minute of your life.
