    Pros

    Barclays' Menlo Park office is made up of a bunch of ex-Lehman technology bankers. The office is very busy office with good deal flow and, for investment banking, is very friendly and laid back.

    Cons

    The main downsides are the long hours (but that's typical for banking) and the location. While Menlo Park is beautiful and you're right next to Stanford and downtown Palo Alto, it's not that convenient if you want to live in the city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While there was an option to work in the San Francisco office, it might be worthwhile to make that more of a permanent option for some people.

    I worked at Barclays Capital

    Pros

    - work hard, play hard mentality
    - worked with talented, smart people
    - solid training program
    - ability for career advancement

    Cons

    - little clarity or visibility from top senior management
    - long hours and much weekend work
    - cut-back on perks and benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to be more visible. It would be helpful for Jerry and Rich to clarify the firm's strategy and have more of a presence to employees.
