I worked at Barclays full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Generally good staff
CEO (Bob) is great in all aspects except continuing with many mediocre one and two downs just because of a false sense of loyality

Cons

Very Political - Too much groupism - based on which company people came from
None of original Barclays culture is remaining - we have thrown out the baby with the bath water

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a proper 360 done for your one downs - before they bring you down

Recommends
Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO
