    I have been working at Trafigura full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The place is great for exposure to global trade and international business, Trade Finance, Derivatives trading, shipping & logistics. You get the feel of really working in a world-class trading company which is moving assets worth billions.

    Cons

    The work-life balance is pretty bad with long hours and shifts which at times makes you feel if you are working for a BPO and people on-site are just barking orders and giving unfair deadlines.
