    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Speed and time matter to the bosses at Trafigura and if at any point you look like you are losing your edge the door will be shown to you. It is like one of those fast-paced investment banking or trading firms which are shown in US TV shows, but the work is very dull and repetitive. The stakes are high as the value of the goods is very high. You get a very good exposure to global trade and international business.

    Cons

    The career progression options are extremely limited and this leads to a bit of favoritism in the promotions. This leads to stress in the teams and hence the attrition is pretty high. Better than a KPO, but not as good as a front office trading desk.
