    I worked at Barclays

    Pros

    Massive budgets, huge desire to do things better and to show that they're ahead of the competition. Bonuses for top performers are great.

    Cons

    Everyone needs to sign-off the smallest detail so slow to adapt. Salary increases for internal moves tiny if at all. No recognition of external market rates. Bonus ratings fit forced distribution so more about who likes you than what you actually achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognise that your best people aren't necessarily the loudest.

    I have been working at Barclays

    Pros

    I have been with Barclays since a graduate and there has never been a dull moment. The company values it's employees and the people I work with are really smart and committed

    Cons

    There is always a slight bureaucracy in every team even though they promote a flat, meritocracy culture. Just make sure you know who to impress at all times.
