Generous benefits and support

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Coventry, England (UK)

Pros35 hour working week, generous holiday allowance, provision for flexible working, brand recognition, and extremely supportive redundancy/relocation package.

ConsA large company has to work in a certain way, and Barclays are no exception - there is a lot of 'pidgeonholing' of job roles, and the company is so large it's hard to stand out.
As a large company, they tend to be a little more inclined to consider 'staff' as 'human resources' - something to be relocated and redeployed to fit in with a strategy.

Advice to Senior ManagementA manager is not the same thing as a person with the right technical skills. There's a good selection of managers within Barclays, but they're not there in all segments of the organization.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
