  1.  

    Prestigious but unfulfilling

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Assistant Vice President  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Assistant Vice President in New York, NY

    Pros

    Big bank means lots of flow
    Management is thinking along the right lines and driving the company the right way

    Cons

    Highly political
    Sub market compensation
    Managers realize Barclays is Bulge Bracket now so think they have to do less to retain staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going the way you are, but do more than "the bare minimum" to keep staff happy. Sometimes paying 1 cent more draws 2 cents of additional benefit

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO
  2.  

    Do not value human capital

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Vice President, IT Equities  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Vice President, IT Equities in New York, NY

    Pros

    Relatively low pressure
    Some interesting projects
    Variety of technologies
    Nice people

    Cons

    Management has very little vision
    British companies place very little value in people except at highest levels in organization
    Don't expect any assistance in advancing your career. Don't belive in claims that there is tuition assistance - non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must do better at rewarding people so that they want to stay.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
