    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    I worked at Glencore full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Ok so this is a tough situation as I was let go (made redundant) when operations were scaled down. Good remuneration, clear definition of role and title. Good roster and peers were good, too.

    Cons

    Site had a culture inherited from other sites within the organisation with clunky procedures for technical staff, however managers were able to make sweeping changes with little regard for consequences when it suited them.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your staff more and invest in growing them. Times will not always be so rosy for employers. Promote more internally.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Glencore full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Less bureaucracy than other large miners (depending on asset type though from what I have heard). Good pay, good staff conditions e.g. sick leave. Good graduate experience - i view lack of structure in graduate employment as a good thing. Thrown in the deep end. I swam for 6 years. Good exposure to a lot of roles and responsibilities.

    Cons

    Pay can vary by asset. Worked for the same company in two different asset types. Large pay rise by changing assets for the same role. This was mainly due to too much power over salaries by uninformed HR at the first operation. Commercial and finance divisions are generally mildly retarded and interfere far too much with minor capital expenditure.

    Advice to Management

    Finance need to trust experienced mining engineers to do their job and stop interfering.
