Pleasant and Challenging Environment

Technology Analyst (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsMost managers are very willing to help their employees achieve whatever goals they set (including internal movement, education, international opportunity, etc)

ConsRecent management changes have left the company with continually changing objectives and strategies. Likely to get better.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

No strategy: hire and fire, reactive fire drills and completely corrupt promotion process

Vice President (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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


Pros: Very little positivity on the horizon as no plans are… Cons: Plans continuously changing meaning time wasted hiring and firing Repeated firedrills mean never able to work on improvement or strategic initiatives Never able to right size teams… Advice to Senior Management: Make a 2 or 3 year strategy and stick to it Stop wasting time with twice yearly staff reductions meaning continous hiring Base promotion on ranking… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
