Pros

Good Brand Name
One of the highest pay scales in Pune

Cons

Immature senior mgmt.
Very less transparency.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees with more respect. Give them some stability, as too many changes over a short period of time would lead to motivation problems.
Need to create more transparency in the decisions that are impacting employees.

    I have been working at Barclays

    Pros

    Pay, commission structure and some recognition every other quarter.

    Cons

    EMployee relations with management, no understanding, too much work for next to no benefit. They reward complacency and laziness with extended stays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reshuffle staff - remove more senior staff to other areas, they are just making the new hires depressed.

    Pros

    Flexible working in some teams
    Great office - 1 Churchill Place
    Go in at the right level and it's a good place to work - you can progress
    Graduate scheme people are well thought of in industry

    Cons

    Lack of growth - Retail Bank is stagnant - and its all about managing a portfolio - no NPD
    ITS ALL ABOUT REPORTING - decks, decks, decks, MI, MI, MI, (yawn)
    Lack of proffesional people there- too many people who have worked their way up to a B6 level with no ideas, no passion and are just corporate bods
    A lot of Americans - by this I mean Americans are brought over on huge relocation packages at B7 level - why not internally develop/promote

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to a strategy
    Communicate with your teams
    Deliver actual benefits - BAU is not a deliverable
    Develop your people

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO
