The rules are clear: put in your time and impress those in positions of influence

Manager (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Barclays full-time for more than a year

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementOrganise work load better so less-senior staff can plan their lives.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
