    I have been working at Louis Dreyfus Group full-time

    Pros

    informal work culture, up beat mood

    Cons

    1. Zero training(technical) for new joiners/existing employees.
    2. Unbelievable focus on cost cutting in the weirdest of areas( basic maintenance, toilet accessories)
    3. Non existent HR department.( Money allocated for employee satisfaction is not used and shown as savings)
    4.Very less qualities of a MNC ( upper management is happy with low standards if it saves money)
    5.Pay rise is not according to talent but according to the extent you can flatter your boss

    Advice to Management

    Please be a bit more professional(sorry lot more). Give some teeth to the HR dept. Focus on well being of employees.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Louis Dreyfus Group part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Traders are fun and helpful. Generally very upbeat, energetic working culture. I was incredibly fortunate to have been given the exposure to a desk that doesn't even take interns at a young age.

    Cons

    I was not prepared, as a college sophomore, for this internship. I had only rudimentary understanding of trading and economics and had trouble with basic concepts around how the market works. I wish I had had more formal training but it was a small desk where resources were limited.

    Pros

    - Nice people for a trading job
    - Good hours
    - Relaxed atmosphere as long as you are making money
    - Potential to learn, and colleagues that want to help you learn

    Cons

    - Lots of pressure if you are losing money
    - Compensation decisions seemed opaque, you get the feeling you are making a fair amount relative to your profit/loss but you wonder whether you aren't

    Advice to Management

    The training program is great, don't change it a bit... but you should consider recruiting from more schools. There is a lot of talent out there you are missing by only advertising your company in a few places.
