Culture is very difficult to integrate with and line management is not able to support staff

I have been working at Barclays

Pros

Some of the benefits are okay, including the 30 days holiday and car allowance.
Good opportunity to learn corporate banking principles and then high tail it out of there to another bank

Cons

Culture is not very professional, with too many personalities not pulling in the same direction (ie focusing on delivering value for the company).
Pay is not great compared to other organisations, particularly for senior programme manager roles
Line management is awful - feedback sessions are not specific and almost impossible to act on feedback.
Although there is a lot said about Topgrading and 360 degree feedback during the interviews - none of these were ever used once working for Barclays Corporate.

    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.

    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.
