    I worked at ADM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent trainee program. Lots of opportunities to learn how to trade.

    Cons

    Very asset driven, lots of layers to management. If asked to move, you are expected to move.

    Advice to Management

    Your assets are overvalued, they're an anchor around your neck. The core of your business is killing you.

    Pros

    Pretty stable company with good compensation. Very well define hierarchy and process driven. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Very big company to make a impact and still work on the old culture. Need to be more innovative and give more freedom to perform rather then doing in the old way. Competitiveness is missing in the culture as the growth is not fast paced.

    Be more agile and evolve with the new generation to deliver.
