I worked at Louis Dreyfus Group

Pros

The hours here are reasonable; most people work around a 60 hour week with differences depending on the trading desk. Not exactly the best place for advancement, as it is a relatively small company.

Cons

LD's Human Resources department is notoriously slow and ineffective. Job offers were given almost 2 whole months after the interview with no word in between. Advancement is difficult as it is a small company with few upper level jobs open.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall, not a bad place to work; the culture is very segmented depending on the desk. Changes to consider would be more HR changes than anything else.

    I worked at Louis Dreyfus Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Traders 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.

    Cons

    I 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.
