    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Trafigura full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Well organized IT at first with the feeling that people work together Friendly IT team with good specialists, everyone good technically Advanced projects and interesting plans for the future Exposure to valuable business knowledge

    Cons

    After changes in IT management things happening seemingly at random, with constantly changing business requests Division between software developers hired by old and new management - people sitting next to each other and never saying a word Deep division between IT and business. Business is always right, IT is always wrong. Prevailing blame culture.

    I have been working at Trafigura

    Pros

    Well compensated. Great start in the oil industry. Flat organisation, allowing relatively quick advancement if you know what you want to do and have the skills and/or relationships to get there.

    Cons

    Very demanding. Poor work/life experience. Changes not communicated to employees until after decisions are made. Pressure to relocate. Poor management infrastructure. Little regard for employee happiness. Little/no formal training opportunities/all opportunities must be driven by employees.
