I worked at Barclays full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

there were extra activities outside the work place that led to knowing more about the environment around us creating awareness.

Cons

concentration of alot of power to some individuals which sometimes made the working environment abit frustrating because that powerled to the whims of some individuals being met, some of which were ridiculous.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To open more lines of communication with staff to get more feedback and directly consult with groundstaff.

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

    Pros

    Good employer

    Working conditions very good

    I have enjoyed it

    Cons

    Unless you go to a part of the business that is performing well or has a good portfolio, there may be the chance in future of lay offs or redundancies

    Want your pound of flesh and no room for people who do not perform and progress

    Very competitive and hard targets

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR contact was not very professional. Various HR consultants emailing conflicting information and interview packs not being received in time for the actual interview.
