    Pros

    Barclays' Menlo Park office is made up of a bunch of ex-Lehman technology bankers. The office is very busy office with good deal flow and, for investment banking, is very friendly and laid back.

    Cons

    The main downsides are the long hours (but that's typical for banking) and the location. While Menlo Park is beautiful and you're right next to Stanford and downtown Palo Alto, it's not that convenient if you want to live in the city.

    Advice to Management

    While there was an option to work in the San Francisco office, it might be worthwhile to make that more of a permanent option for some people.
