    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    The Bank has a great start attracting HNI customers at a prime locality of the cosmopolitan city.

    Cons

    but unfortunately it became directionless in the sunny field of retail banking, where other smaller new ones had made fortunes and Indian Govt. Banks started consolidating,with huge business, this one has thought otherwise

    Advice to Management

    Put in place proper people to manage the field level jobs where the staff directly handling customers has to have full job satisfaction by way of eligible leave, salary and other working conditions as are expected of a MNC Bank. Otherwise it is bound to fail.
