I worked at Barclays Capital full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Was very ambitious and aggressive with great go getter culture. After the purchase of Lehman operations, there was a new energy, however not all was good.

Cons

Lost their way and after Lehman there was a large loss of the Barclays Magic and sparkle, this has led to lots of clashes at management level and caused uncertainty in the various camps in the divisions across the firm.

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

    Pros

    Good training, and the chance to rotate between various functions within technology.

    Cons

    Slow growth and advancement, learning stagnates after a while. A confusing, inconsistent performance review system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the performance review system, so that it isn't dependent on a manager's peculiarities.
