    I have been working at Barclays full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work is not complex and it is relatively easy to impress your boss by doing normal, BAU work.

    Cons

    The work is not complex and you may feel that you are bored or forgetting what you studied in Uni. Depending on your team, it's also difficult to plan your life as something last-minute may come up, forcing you to cancel or delay plans after work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organise work load better so less-senior staff can plan their lives.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
