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

    Pros

    - excellent bonuses
    - fast pace environment forces you to learn quickly
    - ability to move around within the company to different roles

    Cons

    - very cut-throat environment where you see firings and resignings happen often
    - training is not necessarily their forte
    - hours worked are ridiculous... a lot of these positions should be geared towards young professionals w/o families

    Advice to Management

    - emphasize better training schedule
    - stop cutting costs and hire more help if needed...

    Applied online. Got a phone call and first round interview out of the blue, and invited to the final round at the end of the call. Final round was fairly strait forward, some technical questions.
