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

    Pros

    A 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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the employee's and not on the drive to succeed

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

    Pros

    Barclays has excellent people with an excellent culture. I enjoyed my stint there very much. I would recommend it to my friends!

    Cons

    Barclays still a growing bank in Asia, hence the deal flow might not be as strong as the other bulge bracket banks yet. However, I am sure we will be able to catch up!
