    "Junior trader"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Junior Trader 

    I have been working at Noble Group Limited full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Bright people, working with them is fun - Good work/life balance. Few/no face-time required, when the work is done you go enjoy your evening

    Cons

    - Below-market compensation for junior positions - Very hierarchical from middle management onwards, still run like a privately owned, local business instead of a global corporate - Culture can hamper development if you are junior. Your success depends more on subjective than objective (and measurable) criteria

    Advice to Management

    Dear Chairman, dear CEO, Noble's history has been an outstanding one. But today's junior people and trainees will form the company of tomorrow so if they feel overlooked or left behind they may leave for greener pastures.

    I have been working at Noble Group Limited

    Pros

    Looks good on resume (I am not even sure about this)

    Cons

    -Unorganized, always fire fighting -No training, no guidance, better bring your swim suit to work -HR works for the business unit manager, in other words no HR -Need to be 40 or older to get somewhere -Old boys club, ladies are not welcomed -Manager takes all the credit -Wish I hadn't taken this job as several months into this I can't see any future. It is also very hard to find a new job in current market condition

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Chairman, please ensure Noble keeps your advertised spirit of entrepreneurship. At the moment, it's all about trying to survive, nothing is fun and entrepreneurial at all.
