I have been working at Barclays

Pros

Is a sophisticated practice and no space for lingering, meaning dynamic.

Cons

No straightforwardness and loyalty.. Plenty of delegation, no ownership. Left hand does not know what is happening with right one. No communication at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to integrate teams....integration, integration.....GLOBAL integration.

    I have been working at Barclays

    Pros

    Offer a very competative salary within sector, good working environment, adequate pension scheme, very friendly approachable professional staff. Work life balance.

    Cons

    In my experience recieved no real appropriate training to keep up to date with the changes being made in my areas of technology thus feeling over the years as de-skilled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the off shoring and constant restructuring is loosing valuable dedicated members of staff and placing remaining staff with uncertainty and seeking alternative deemed safer jobs with other companies.

    Hire great project managers that are good leaders and excellent communicators.
