    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.

    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!
