    the money they pay you is good. But beware

    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.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with sharp minds; Top tier commodity trading firm; Benefits are fine (insurance / food etc.)

    Cons

    1’ Super long working hour, especially during month end (definitely over 12 hours per day); 2’ Workload doesn’t match the pay at all; 3’ DD is supposed to be an independent department but not in really. It is still under trader’s “supervision”; 4’ Networking is the most important and effective factor impacts promotion. Otherwise you could be an analyst for 5+ years (unless your manager left) 5’ If any work is in doubt/dispute,...
