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

    Pros

    Really care about the people that work here. Analysts get meaningful responsibility and get put on major deals the moment they walk in. They will work you, but you'll get a good experience.

    Cons

    The hours are fairly long for an investment banking analyst. This is pretty standard in the industry and remains the key issue as there's no way around that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more cognizant of analysts' times. The benefits and perks are decent to an extent but there needs to be more focus on streamlining work.
