      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Glencore full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good renumeration if you can stomach all the cons below.

      Cons

      Absolute worst experience of my professional life, where the culture is more toxic than the lead extracted from the ground. From senior mine management down - the toxic work environment and lack of support is disgraceful. Management changed roster with less than 2 weeks notice. Senior management are incompetent, lie to staff and bullying is rife. Extremely high staff turn over.

      Advice to Management

      Bullying needs to be curbed in the tail and more focus on developing talent, not protecting bullying managers. They do not care about your mental wellness.
