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

Programmer Director (B7) (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsSome 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

ConsCulture 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good Brand and Pay scale but No work satisfaction

    Test Analyst (Former Employee)
    Pune (India)

    I worked at Barclays


    Pros: Good Brand Name One of the highest pay scales in Pune Cons: Immature senior mgmt. Very less transparency. Advice to Senior Management: Treat employees with more respect. Give them some stability, as too many changes over a short period… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
