    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    - Exciting and rewarding work - if you're cut out for it - Opportunity to work and interact with stakeholders from across the globe - One can move desks to handle different products and different regions as you get experienced - Company provides transport, so travelling to work isn't as painful as it is generally in Mumbai - Managers are really helpful and provide guidance to resolve any pressing issues - The compensation...

    Cons

    - Work can get stressful and overwhelming as operations are live round the clock - Work life balance can go for a toss depending on volume of work - Hours can get extended at time depending on what region you are handling

    Advice to Management

    At times, there are different practices followed at international offices compared to the Mumbai office when it comes to work from home policy, comp off and local holidays - motivation can get affected!

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Trafigura full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - you work with some of the smartest people from the industry in your role - enough independence given to manage your work well - good pay (specially variable) for performers

    Cons

    read in the same order of pros: - you need to be smart and fast enough to follow what is going on or you loose the bus - with independence comes responsibility to deliver and the standards are high - if you don't perform well, you risk your bonus (which is significant component of the overall salary) and maybe your job as well Overall if you want a comfortable environment, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    Good Bonus Work location & facilities (Transport, food etc.)

    Cons

    No work life balance Shrewd management A worst internal software system (with the management's decision to move from one to another bad software system lots of data is lost or mismatch - which has to be reconciled manually, which leads to long working hours and useless work) Most of the profiles are no brain and only data entry type work, that means even if you stay longer you won't learn much. Management believes...
