I have been working at Barclays Capital

Pros

Decent salary, fairly relaxed and friendly working culture. People were nice, the team I was in had some really experienced people, so you could learn a lot.

Cons

The operations were not running very well... so you ended up chasing them up most of your time. Pretty tiring after a while.

    I have been working at Barclays Capital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - good salary
    - nice offices
    - nice people, relaxed environment (in comparison to London)
    - interesting GF project, managing myself and doing what I believe is correct (DEPENDS on your manager!)

    Cons

    Everything depends on a project and manager, if your manager is an idiot looking just after himself, you are screwed. I worked in that kind of project for 3 years. Luckily, you can change teams :).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean your Middle/Senior managment from dicks.

    Pros

    good culture, helpful learning environment, better development focus than other IBs

    Cons

    investment banking is becoming a tougher to work in, more regulated, does not pay as well as other IBs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    review pay structure especially in the more junior roles, will be increasingly harder to attract and retain talent
