    Pros

    Work culture is great compared to other banks and the environment is also great for software developers. I have worked with three different teams and all have been satisfactory.

    Cons

    I have not found much downside of the firm, yet. However, there are some issues with the internal mobility. One might find it hard to move internally once you get in.

  2. Prestigious but unfulfilling

    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 Management

    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
