    I have been working at Bunge Limited full-time

    Pros

    Global Business, dynamic environment, good benefits . Some people are kind

    Cons

    Very political and the lack of processes make all decisions informal. You need to be in the "loop" to be promoted. Not very organized and the work environment is not good.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance: On Friday we knock off at 5 pm and get to wear smart casual to the office daily.

    Good business travel benefits: If you are on business travel, Bunge will put you up in a good hotel with everything paid for. Regardless of rank, if the travel takes more than 6 hours, they put on a business class flight. Nonetheless, those who get to enjoy this benefit are senior management who travel more frequently.

    Good learning opportunities: Most colleagues are friendly and are willing to teach. HR also organise frequent classes to train employees on required skills.

    Cons

    High Gini coefficient: Top management is paid a lot more than junior staffs. Bunge is a company with a flat structure. Therefore, the chance of climbing up the corporate ladder is a lot lesser. In other words, be expected to get stuck with below-market compensation for a long period of time.

    Below market compensation: They always try to pay below market rate. Most people stay either because they cannot find a job elsewhere, they have a family and need the work-life balance, they are paid well (for senior management), or they are new to the industry who are trying to learn as much before moving on.

    High turnover: On average, 1 people resign from Bunge monthly, and most of those who resigned are mid- and junior executives who don't see prospect staying at Bunge. Those who leave are usually talented and thus able to get better offer outside. If there is a steady outflow of talents, what does that leave Bunge with for those who stayed behind?

    Low morale leading to sub-par performance: The staffs at Bunge have low morale due to aforesaid reasons, leading to sub-par performance. The sub-par performance leads to work dissatisfaction which further drive talents out. This is a vicious cycle.

    Advice to Management

    Many people see Bunge as a stepping stone to something bigger and better elsewhere. You got to work on your talent retention urgently.
