    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Glencore full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Stable company with generally excellent management and colleagues. Good pay and benefits. Collaborative environment. Work life balance is well managed.

    Cons

    Perhaps too stable. Powers are held by only a handful of people, which means everyone knows who the real bosses are, but its a long and challenging road to the top.

    Advice to Management

    More formal training and rotating responsibilities can benefit the company.

        No opinion of CEO

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

        Pros

        Great exposure from a flat organisational structure. As a recent graduate you will be expected to take on big responsibilities from day 1. Good pay and, if you make the cut, excellent potential pay.

        Cons

        Unclear career development prospects (unless you're becoming a trader of course) and risk management / trading is at times very repetitive.

        Advice to Management

        Challenge your graduates or junior analysts to create business development ideas. Rotate graduates more between desks.

        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.
