    Positive Outlook
    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.

    I worked at Glencore

    Pros

    Good work life balance, not long hours if it doesn't have to be. Average industry pay for positions in field

    Cons

    Average industry pay. Difficult to move up in organization if you are good at your job as management is reluctant to lose you in your role

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Glencore full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work life balance is ok. They aren't usually going to make you work weekends. If you have kids, you pretty much have a free pass.

    Cons

    It's not a fun place to work. Everyone is pretty much looking forward to the weekend. Most common dialogue in the office is "How was your weekend" "Too short". Everyone chuckles even after the 10 thousandth time.

    Advice to Management

    Try to engage the employees and provide the ability to learn something new or move up via merit.
