    I worked at Barclays full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Company has a lot of good people working internally. Great skillsets and good personalities, talented as well. Great place to hang out at if you don't like doing much work or accomplishing much of anything. Pay is decent, but below market rate for location.

    Cons

    Lack of ability to get anything done. Everything is rule by committee and unless you're Director level or above, no one listens to nor cares for your opinion, no matter your level of expertise. Dual-headed teams engenders competition and lack of clear direction inhibits progress. Promotion is done via good ole boys network and grading for reviews is done on a curve; one person must receive a poor grade even when undeserved. If you're not in the UK, your opinion does not matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of playing politics, focus on listening to people and enabling success. Stop grading on a curve and start focusing on doing things, versus not rocking the boat.
