    I have been working at Barclays Capital full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good company which are large and can allow me to travel the world in the future. I should be able to climb the ranks into a top salary.

    Cons

    If you are in a team of people which are not so fun in such a large organisation, you realy have to work hard to make sure you get promoted.

    I worked at Barclays Capital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - compensation
    - home office possible
    - multicultural

    Cons

    - six rounds as a job interview and you end in completely different position than you were hired for
    - after so precise interview process you end up with the boss who doesn't know what is going on
    - bureaucracy
    - mess
    - no vision
    - over restricted
    - team spirit - you have to be naive to expect something like that
    - promotion process (assessment) - real work isn't only what matters
