Great internship experience, flat culture

Commodities Analyst (Former Employee)
Changping, Beijing (China)

I worked at Louis Dreyfus Group part-time for less than a year

ProsTraders are fun and helpful. Generally very upbeat, energetic working culture. I was incredibly fortunate to have been given the exposure to a desk that doesn't even take interns at a young age.

ConsI was not prepared, as a college sophomore, for this internship. I had only rudimentary understanding of trading and economics and had trouble with basic concepts around how the market works. I wish I had had more formal training but it was a small desk where resources were limited.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Challenging but Supportive

Trader (Former Employee)

I worked at Louis Dreyfus Group

Pros- Nice people for a trading job
- Good hours
- Relaxed atmosphere as long as you are making money
- Potential to learn, and colleagues that want to help you learn

Cons- Lots of pressure if you are losing money
- Compensation decisions seemed opaque, you get the feeling you are making a fair amount relative to your profit/loss but you wonder whether you aren't

Advice to Senior ManagementThe training program is great, don't change it a bit... but you should consider recruiting from more schools. There is a lot of talent out there you are missing by only advertising your company in a few places.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
