    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Glencore full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance is ok. They aren't usually going to make you work weekends. If you have kids, you pretty much have a free pass.

    Cons

    It's not a fun place to work. Everyone is pretty much looking forward to the weekend. Most common dialogue in the office is "How was your weekend" "Too short". Everyone chuckles even after the 10 thousandth time.

    Advice to Management

    Try to engage the employees and provide the ability to learn something new or move up via merit.
