    I worked at Barclays Capital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good starting pay. They also provide free training in almost anything you can think of. Not bad work-life balance.

    Cons

    Bad career growth, too much politics, promotions and bonuses are NOT based on merit and technical skills. No job security

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Process is good but too much process is bad.
    Give credit to those working employees and NOT to talking employees.
    Lessen the political nature of promotion and bonuses and base it to merit and contributions. Evaluation are highly subjective and unfair.
