    I worked at Glencore full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    At the site level it is a good place to work. The management do their best to support, reward, and develop high achievers. FIFO accommodation is above average.

    Cons

    The performance management system is not very effective. It can be difficult to reward strong performances and easy to hide poor ones. They pay below the industry average. Training can be difficult to get approved. FIFO not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure remuneration is inline with the rest of industry. Make training easier to access for high performers (use it as a reward). Review performance review and management systems.

    I worked at Glencore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very good salary and talented teamates (real geeks in a good way).. Software engineers are trusted by the head of development as technical experts which is very motivating. One of the best manager I had the chance to work with. Multiple projects and the chance to meet traders. Nice HR follow up with very kind people there. So unfortunate that I had to leave due to personal reasons.

    Cons

    Swiss germans are sometimes homebody which make social life a little bit harder.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to trust your people like this.

    I worked at Glencore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to work on cool projects. They pay you well. Lots of perks and benefits. Interesting people and great team to work with.

    Cons

    Bathrooms were gross. Not very flexible with vacation time. Don't really count overtime hours. Hard to get promoted within the company based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Maybe get your debt levels down so you don't have a junk bond rating anymore. That would be a good start.
