I have been working at Barclays full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Better money than some similar jobs. Colleagues tend to be nice and easy to get along with.Gives people a grounding in sales.

Cons

Treated like a robot, very little autonomy or respect. Little to no line of progression, unless you are there for 5+yrs. Very little support from the vast majority of management,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upgrade IT systems and give autonomy back to regular workers, remove competitive nature between different channels.

    Pros

    Great variety of work, lots of good projects and initiatives to get involved with, some very smart people. You can create your own job where you find something valuable that needs doing. Technology is getting more investment than it used to and Barclays IT wants to function more like a Technology company, this is starting to come to fruition. Lots of opportunity to progress.

    Cons

    Everyone is very uncertain about the future, management seem to have no long term plan (that they have shared at least) so often good talent leaves for something more secure. No top-down leadership in IT, very tribal and bottom-up organization, often leading to overlap on work, lots of duplication and no clear picture of where you fit. Broken processes that have been lost in multiple, incomplete restructures make getting most things done a real challenge. If you work outside of the UK, be prepared to adjust to their time zone, and any other region you need to speak with as part of your role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead from the top, create a clear organization structure, provide better definition of teams roles and responsibilities to give employees a better sense of where they are going and that the work they do fits into the organization. Have a longer term plan and be more open about it.
