    I have been working at Barclays Investment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly staff and open door policy for senior management. Easy to engage staff across groups leading to career mobility. I have worked on two teams and have enjoyed both.

    Cons

    Minimal raises for those outside of front office but were given every year. Bonuses vary, but are increasing as regulatory concerns subside.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time understanding what each unit does and ask for candid advice from all team members regarding work ethic and behavior of others.
