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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities if you're in one of the "target" front office business groups like structured products teams, equities research & distribution, wealth (mostly in Asia). Tries to create perception of a growing organization to boost morale.

    Cons

    Creating strong controls, process improvement, retaining key staff still comes second to making money and playing internal games. Budgets are tight now so any improvements are met with make-do attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-think the business model internally first because you already know what's wanted externally.
