    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.

    I have been working at Trafigura full-time

    Pros

    Other than Good pay n bonus I hv nothing good to comment on Traf

    Cons

    Culture sucks n Traf's staff turnover is Super high - hire n fire is probably the best to describe If anyone is considering joining Traf - make sure the remuneration is double or triple yr current otherwise best to stay where u r as u never know when you will be next to be out of job - I wud say Traf is merciless n ruthless place to work in w lots of back stabbing n everyone is fighting for survival

    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.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Good pay, free food, pick and drop facilities, good office location

    Cons

    They determine your efficiency by the number of hours you stay in office, no work life balance, bad office culture and absolutely no help from operators working in other locations, no training, hire and fire people too frequently hence no job stability, difficult to switch job due to no relevant profile available, they claim to send employees aboard for training but is very subjective and you may never get a chance, high pressure job

    I worked at Trafigura

    Pros

    Good Pay, Decent benefits, No Nagging, No Policy culture- Whatever you want becomes a policy, Some smart people, Deep pockets, International Opportunities, A brag about $150 Billion Revenue, Lots of Group Companies to explore, Truly International.

    Cons

    Well, here is the problem, and you would need to prioritize between pros and cons. Select what you like. 1. Negligible presence in India, no one knows about this shop. 2. The age old mentality that Indians are good for back-end work. 3. Age old technologies in IT space, which cannot support the group's growth, yet someone sitting in a black room takes a call and the group suffers. 4. Indian Management runs without a Vision, they are more interested in bonuses than doing good. Too much gold plating of the european bosses. 5. Since the company is predominantly run by Europeans, they treat Indian colleagues as side workers. 6. You might end up scouting for work, and might make yourself irrelevant sooner. Post which your acceptance back in the industry will become extremely challenging. 7. No Training, No Knowledge sharing, no skill enhancement. 8. No retention policy, frequent Hire and Fire, you might be asked to pack your bags in a day. 9. Frequent office shutdowns, they can close any office any day. 10. No job security, every day is a challenge, and you start cursing your fate in what you have got into. 11. The company is on a Auto Pilot, tremendously lacks innovation, in fact innovation will show you the door, intelligence will as well. 12. The company works with some really bad IT vendors, who do not understand the global ecosystems and spend more time impressing the decision makers to retain work. 13. Too much politics, Friends and Family companies are given work, and they produce bad work and charge a bomb to the group. Such decisions are taken in isolation and whistle blowing will show you the door. 14. Open and shut work, you might work on something, just to find out that it has been scrapped, and you start again. 15. The number of people staying more than 6 months is rare, hence the organization is not able to build a cultural fabric, which can excite you. 16. Your boss is your god, and you both are in the firing line anytime. 17. The HR tries, but even they are in the same boat, save themselves. 18. The group's reputation across the world is not being ethical organization. Read more about its business or even wiki page. (May be because of the industry it operates in) 19. Teams get scrapped faster than they are built, and the lack of vision is what you get frustrated with. 20. You might end up working for a truck driver, or an oil driller, or someone who is least expected to hold a position of authority, yet has reached there by someone's blessings.
