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

    Pros

    the money they pay you is good. But beware

    Cons

    - Endless working hours - zero work life balance (the blackberry becomes an extension to your body) - Stress eating at cafeteria and all the free sugar drinks make you hate yourself - Personal vendetta run by higher ups in/outside of india

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to change their view that if they pay you the money they have right to your soul and every single minute of your life.

    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!

    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...

    I have been working at Trafigura full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Reasonable pay and year end bonuses

    Cons

    Culture of the company which consists on stepping over every one to get on top Managers lying to your face Long working hours (10 hours a day the least) No real growth, everyone who 'makes it' is friend of a manager or has done a favor to someone else You will get mistreated in front of everyone else if you make a mistake Constant pressure

    Advice to Management

    Resign since you suck!

    Positive Outlook
    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.
