    Friendly environment, steep learning curve and good career opportunities

    Market Analyst (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsI have been at CRU for two years now, and the work environment is very collaborative and friendly. New ideas are appreciated and the company is investing heavily on innovation. This creates new work and travel opportunities, it's hard to get bored.

    ConsTeams tend to have a flat structure - you can get promoted quickly if you work hard, but there aren't many opportunities to manage people (you can manage projects).

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

    Broadly positive: boutique, so know thyself: if you thrive in an international SME environment - a good fit.

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsAutonomy, interesting work, global travel. Good internal data histories, covering a long-run sweep of modern commodity data across metals. Well regarded name in the industry and a great springboard to other places: CRU often called commodity research university as it is a proving ground for other companies.

    ConsCan be a goldfish bowl (small outfit). Top-heavy on senior staff near retirement age: but hey, that also spells opportunity...

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't over-promote analysts! Pay for deep expertise, but allow generalist managers to manage.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Constransient in the first 5-10 years. Raising one's own salary (also a pro in a way)

    This is an old review, and the company has changed significantly since 2009. Look at the careers page of our corporate website for up-to-date information.
