Current Employee - Technical Lead in Pune (India)
Current Employee - Technical Lead in Pune (India)

I have been working at Barclays full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

1. Good Work Life Balance
2. People get paid good, but you need to bargain while joining
3. You will be able to learn domain if you get good supportive UK counter part (some luck is required).

Cons

1. Politics at middle management level
2. No Career progression. Technically you will not be able to grow.
3. No Promotions, so choose your role correctly. 1-3 years B2, 3-6 years B3, 6-9 years B4, 9-13 years B5, 13+ B6.
4. No direction around how they want to invest in India.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Work on real career framework and not something on paper.
2. Remove some management layer, you don't need so many managers.
