    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Glencore full-time

    Pros

    Many good traders are there who have much to impart. Stable work environment, where the hours are generally okay.

    Cons

    Terrible promotion opportunities, silo mentality, and nothing much ever happens for juniors. System is extremely dated, providing plenty of unnecessary manual work for people who are not traders. Improving the process is pointless since chances for promotion are poor anyway and good work does not get recognised. Pay is very low compared to the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Put proper people in management, not just place people in management because they have been with the company a long time. Being good at their daily job does not mean they are good managers.

    I have been working at Glencore full-time

    Pros

    Glencore is an excellent place to work. They provide a great working environment with open communications to managers and higher managers.

    Cons

    There are not many downsides to working at glencore from an office job point of view. Only thing i would say is that there is pressure for cost cutting and reduction but everyone in the industry is in the current market

    Advice to Management

    Have better titles for job positions and organization chart. Current structure is there are no titles and everyone is treated on the same level that is how the main offices are ran. An orgranization chart would provide more structure.
