A great bank, suffering some compliance issues

Card Systems Manager (Current Employee)
Poole, England (UK)

I have been working at Barclays full-time for more than 5 years

ProsA great company to start your career in, with good training programs and opportunities to experience and grow new skills. Has the potential to be very successful

ConsVery performance driven organisation, and lately not the safest place to work. Have offshored a lot of work from the UK.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the employee's and not on the drive to succeed

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
