I worked at Barclays

Pros

Great atmosphere, people are excellent and fun to be with. I really enjoy working with people with the advanced technology that we have. Great location as well in New York, around all the best places to eat for lunch and dinner if you stay in the office late once or twice. Management is strong and the direction of the company can been viewed with confidence. Respect is also valued a lot and they do not mistreat people there. Some of the friendships I built at Barclays I will keep for the rest of my life, so keep a watch on this company!

Cons

Management has a hard time giving time off for people. Snide comments are sometime present. It is helpful to be nice and build relationships - the environment really fosters that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be great it Barclays gives a few more days off per year to cope with emergencies.
