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

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, very smart colleagues, good work/life balance, very good package, company culture very open to innovation and personal initiative

    Cons

    Compensation is very good, but can vary quite a bit depending the market conditions, which might not be suitable for people who want a very stable and predictable income.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let growth push you to become too process-oriented.

    - Not the best in terms of work life balance initially but gets better with experience - Holidays followed depends on the region the individual is covering and subject to market schedules

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment and you get to work with some of the most talented minds in the industry. Front office roles offer lots to learn and room to grow.

    Cons

    Tough environment with long working hours and plenty of internal politics. Very difficult to break into senior management as it's run by an "old guard" very closed network of senior traders. Back/Middle office roles seem very process driven with high turnover.
