    • Work/Life Balance

    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Operations Analyst in Mumbai

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

    Pros

    Exposure to global trade world Very little micromanagement (may vary from team to team) You will love the work if you have a kick for numbers Chances of travelling abroad Free meals and travel facilities

    Cons

    Brutal hire and fire policy Stressfull work environment, may feel like you have a gun to your head all times Repetitive work, may start to feel like a dead end after few months Slow growth in every aspect (hierarchy wise, learning wise and financially)

    Advice to Management

    Try to make the company more employee friendly and flexible in terms of policies. Nobody likes a workplace which feels like school run by strict principles and teachers.

    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
