Outbound Sales at Barclays Bank

Account Consultant (Current Employee)
Sunderland, North East England, England (UK)

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

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
