Great place to work

Assistant Vice President In IT (Current Employee)

Proswe have great kit, great people and a good understanding of strategy and governance however i feel struggle with the implementation

Consthe off shoring is really slowing everything down, more often than not the on shore teams in the UK and US are picking up the work not completed by the off shore teams even though the on shore team sizes have been dramatically down sized

Advice to Senior Managementsort out the offshore operations, they just don't seem to know what they need to do from an IT prospective (they don't have the technical skills) and from a barclays process perspective (they don't know how the processes work)
