Pros

Barclays is a great place to build a career in the banking industry. The growth is very rapid and the opportunities are there. Their is constant expansion throughout the country with new acquisitions popping up left and right. Overall, it is a great place to work if you are motivated and work hard.

Cons

A downside is that some middle management is a little soft and some tasks could easily be delegated to other employees and done more effectively.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management does a great job of recognizing the work done by employees at all levels.

    Pros

    The company has good and fair pay. Bonuses are ok, but not amazing. I really enjoyed the environment I worked in, I was supporting the trading floor and felt that I made a difference in the bottom line of which securities they were going to buy or sell.

    Cons

    The hours there are definitely long. Many times, I've taken the midnite car back, but it feels good every once in a while to remind yourself that what you do is pretty important, and during the end of the year, bonuses are fair. It really depends on how you feel the tradeoff of your personal life to your professional.

    I worked at Barclays

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, people are excellent and fun to be with. I really enjoy working with people with the advanced technology that we have. Great location as well in New York, around all the best places to eat for lunch and dinner if you stay in the office late once or twice. Management is strong and the direction of the company can been viewed with confidence. Respect is also valued a lot and they do not mistreat people there. Some of the friendships I built at Barclays I will keep for the rest of my life, so keep a watch on this company!

    Cons

    Management has a hard time giving time off for people. Snide comments are sometime present. It is helpful to be nice and build relationships - the environment really fosters that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great it Barclays gives a few more days off per year to cope with emergencies.
