  1. Good organisation to start career.

    I have been working at Barclays Shared Services

    Pros

    Good for starters. The BFSS department is worthwhile. RT is great for starters. The class of people working is good. Academy coaches are cool bunch. BAU managers are typical managers. Salary is paid on the dot by 8PM on 28th of the month. The set of beliefs are foundation for any good personality. Overall a good experience until you are happy.

    Cons

    RT is monotonous. Over time nothing is left to learn. Tedious trainings for the process but no certified training. Transport department is inefficient and seldom annoying. Negligible global exposure. Just a part of Barclays, not completely Barclays UK standard. Food at Noida 2 is pathetic(you'll agree from day one). Never employee centric. Just a cost center. Don't expect huge exposure or package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve the work life balance. Please be more employee centric. Introduce some non process trainings or self development trainings. Treat the lower hierarchy group as humans and not a mere resource.

  2. Very satisfying career with BSS

    I have been working at Barclays Shared Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent location in Mumbai. New setup which is growing steadily. Helpful seniors and good citizenship initiatives. Pick up and drop off services provided for shift related roles. Perks are decent. Good career progression and mobility opportunities.

    Cons

    Very old IT systems often cause lots of issues. There is a desperate need to overhaul the infrastructure. The insurance plan needs to be changes. Too little coverage provided. HR needs to be a bit more proactive and approachable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase more transparency in communication. Keep focussing on the value pillars. Overhaul needed in IT/Support and HR areas.

    I have been working at Barclays Shared Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good company for those who don't wish to stay longer ( less than 7 months).
    Good company for those who have ZERO calibre and do not wish to work and are good in spoiling the work.
    Barclays is not meant for really hard working professionals

    Cons

    No growth
    High attrition
    NO RETENTION
    Fake Hiring Interviews
    Hire 1 Fire 3 Policy
    If you are good at your job and have great values, they will compel you for a Performance Improvement Plan without a valid reason and eventually torture you to resign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be advised that professionals are not fools. Stop this child game of hiring and firing. This is only hampering your brand equity. The company has already defamed its brand. Give opportunities to your employees in order gain their faith. Improve your VALUES. Don't impose your disabilities onto your employees.

    Pros

    - Action oriented culture
    - Top leaders have strong connection with people working at bottom of the pyramid
    - Accountability is clearly visible and thus it makes any mistakes quite obvious
    - No blame culture, everyone works towards resolving the issue rather than pointing out fingers
    - Excellent compensation for good performers

    Cons

    - Being part of a traditional bank with a history, some of the things from past need transformation for the "new" age
    - Employees could promote more sense of togetherness, bonding and social networking among themselves
