    It's a job...

    Energy Department (Current Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsWork 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.

    ConsIt'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 Senior ManagementTry to engage the employees and provide the ability to learn something new or move up via merit.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hard work, excellent pay

    Intern (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsCompensation was fantastic for an intern
    Few needless meetings
    Interesting and technically challenging work
    Opportunity to work with some tremendously skilled people
    Surprising office diversity

    ConsGlencore certainly has a reputation although you don't particularly get a feeling for it while working there.
    Not very much mentoring, interns were very much left alone to figure things out. While I did learn a lot from this, at times it made things needlessly difficult.

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

    HR and Senior management need to take a closer look at line managers that do whatever they want

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Baar, Zug (Switzerland)

    ProsIn general the people at the company where very open and friendly. The company offers a nice infraestructure and daily benefits as a Gym, a place to eat, parking spot if needed, and more.

    ConsMy experience with my line manager was a disaster, he never talked to me or provided any type of feedback.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a closer look at the line managers, make sure they are as friendly with their team members as they are with the senior management.
