    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,...

    Just the food....rest everything is useless here

    Systems are slow , people are slow, work is overrated, engineer dominated, if you are an MBA please dont come here. People sit here for 12 hours just to make entries on books

    Pros

    None worth mentioning . Join this company only if all the decent ways of earning money in the world are exhausted

    Cons

    1. They have created fancy JD for Deals Desk role but it is nothing but data entry job 2. There is no proper training given on data entry and if mistake happens you are shouted at by seniors in front of whole team. Management makes comments like "We will give one more chance, hope you are worth your salary" 3. There is no culture in the company. People abuse each other on face with cuss words 4. There is no work life...

    I worked at Trafigura full-time

    Pros

    Good exp. for ppl wanting to become traders. Good pay (though only slightly higher than oil majors). Potential to travel. Equity owners make a ton of money at a young age.

    Cons

    Compared to oil majors, you work 50% more, you receive poor training, you are blamed for anything that goes wrong. You may be fired quite quickly, even if it is an honest mistake. Very high turnover. Low morale. Shady business practices.

    Advice to Management

    They make a ton of money every year, so I don't think they care that most employees hate working there. I guess stick with the ruthless culture
