    I worked at Trafigura full-time

    Pros

    Free Food, salary, transportation, bonus. Best Organization to take their offer letter and negotiate it to get better offer somewhere else.

    Cons

    Over extended working hours, overtime expected everyday or threatens to fire you! Bad Managers, just wants you to stay in office and forget your family. No Personal life. Hire and Fire at it's best!

    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 is good along with a rewarding bonus structure. If you do well, you are recognized and compensated for it. - Benefits (insurance etc.) that are provided are really good and office facilities are world class. - One can eventually move to internationally after getting this experience as this industry and these roles have a huge scope in the Middle East. - There are really good quarterly and yearly parties! - It's a large organization and all the pros that come with it.

    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

    No Opinion of CEO

    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 in hire & fire policy, during my tenor of 5 - 6 years with the company I have witnessed that almost 400 employees were asked to leave. Strictly not advisable to top tier pass outs.

    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
