Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

I worked at Barclays full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great pension and flexible benefits (sickness, holiday especially at 30 days). Buildings are light and modern. Well defined lines of responsibility.

Cons

Too much red tape. Too many people who think their role is to preserve the status quo. Too much focus on immediate results to the detriment of any future planning.

Advice to Management

Create a strategy for how technology fits within the business and deliver it.
