    I worked at Gunvor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some very nice people
    Founder has led the company well
    Salary not bad when bonuses taken into account

    Cons

    Several in management tend to be the enforcer type treating employees like naughty children
    Founder may retire soon and the potential replacements are not impressive
    Management tends to act like entitled little princes - eating at the trough and being counterproductive

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at who is actually contributing business value and who are parasites. Lose the parasites.
