    I worked at Barclays full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible work culture
    Pay on par with most IT companies
    Constant employee feedback measuring at company level
    Encourages employee participation at all levels
    Lot of internal openings for movement/promotion
    Yearly Leave Allowance

    Cons

    Specific to business unit I worked with especially about onshore stakeholders:
    Racially motivated, treats Indian counterparts as low grade people
    Concentrating core development work onshore
    Too much interference in local management
    Your major time is lost in meetings rather than focusing on actual work

    Company level:
    No focus on location strategy in Pune
    Most processes marred with bureaucracy
    Lack of standard processes across business units
    Senior staff within company not open to change in work culture
    Appraisal process is murky and lacks clarity and direction at site level
    No involvement of HR in handling employee grievance/issues after induction
    Internal movements not flexible, leads to career stagnation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High time company establishes a firm identity of it's own while operating as a captive unit, a lot of money is being spent on employee welfare and other stuff however the employee is already missing out of that equation
