    Pluspunten

    Accountability , okay benefits. Work environment. Good location.

    Minpunten

    Over worked, not compensated for hard work.

    Advies aan management

    Pay your talented and loyal employees more than the industry average. Give hard working employees cost of living raises.

    Pluspunten

    Great people to work with. Most people want to go the extra mile to get the job done well. The office's open concept makes it a nice work atmosphere, and it is located near good restaurants and bars. Depending on the needs of the company and how well you manage your career, you could take on new and challenging opportunities that will help with your career growth. Bonuses can be very good if you're a good performer AND...

    Minpunten

    Salaries are generally on the lower end of market range. If promoted in some interim period, your responsibilities will change immediately but, as "per company policy", your salary is not adjusted until March of the following year (and you're not told exactly how much is the adjustment until such time). Insurance benefits are also not the best and the 401k match is 100% vested after your 3rd yr. of service. There is certainly...

    Advies aan management

    Restructuring and changes in departmental direction to help reduce costs is understandable, but once you've identified your top talent, be prepare to increase their comp, especially if they will be taking on more responsibilities. In the long run, you will continue to lose top talent and the time to fill those positions plus your talent acquisition costs will be higher than if you awarded top performers with an extra...

    Voormalige werknemer - Oil Trader in Londen, Engeland
    Positief vooruitzicht
    Afkeurende mening over directeur

    Ik heb voltijdgewerkt bij Castleton Commodities International voor meer dan 5 jaar

    Pluspunten

    Location. Some decent colleagues. Uncertainty generates camaraderie. Generally one has a clear mandate to trade. Decent trade support on physical and paper. Decent coffee.

    Minpunten

    Terrible management. Very high staff turnover across all aspects of the business. The company doesn’t know if it’s a merchant energy trader or a hedge fund. The big merger with Morgan Stanley was a huge drain on resources. Much off the legacy CCI structure/personnel got chopped to buy the MS group time. Absolutely useless, and expensive, research group. Risk model is a bit mental.

    Advies aan management

    More communication needed.

    Pluspunten

    Very fast paced, will learn a lot

    Minpunten

    Hard work goes unnoticed and never acknowledged - do not expect a pay increase or bonus for your efforts unless you play into the heavy office politics. If you are given a verbal or bonus target - it is a trick to get you into the door. This is not the place for you unless you have a stick up your bottom and do not care to have any type of work-life balance. HR is a disaster, new leaders do not have a say since...

    Ik heb korter dan een jaar als voltijd bij Castleton Commodities International gewerkt

    Pluspunten

    Great people in every department: from Traders to HR. Very skilled and (over)qualified people even in support roles.

    Minpunten

    A few people compare to other competitor meaning a lot of work. A lot of restructuration and opaque hierarchy (can't really get who is the boss of who).

    Afkeurende mening over directeur

    Ik werk voltijd bij Castleton Commodities International voor 3 jaar

    Pluspunten

    Nice office, in a good location. Talented and friendly traders/analysts.

    Minpunten

    Negative atmosphere, the company lacks direction and Europe has no leadership. There is only 1 decision maker in the firm who is afraid of the shareholders. Politics are horrible, too many fiefdoms and too many middle managers make decisions with the sole interest of retaining their jobs.

    Advies aan management

    Re-structure, cut out the middle managers or replace them with people who actually have experience trading and focus on growing revenues. The decision making needs to be delegated to desk heads, specifically remove the need to make 30-page ppt to justify every business decision. Operations and back office have too much influence in restricting business decisions (they only ever say no!).
