    I worked at Barclays Shared Services

    Pros

    Extremely flexible work environment, open door policy, sportive managers, work life balance is maintained, consistently 'fun' activities are planned for all employees including tournaments, townhalls, potlucks etc. Great opportunity to learn, rewards and recognition are common.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are not immense, stretching is a regular practice in the finance department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline work to avoid duplication and encourage further studies at a low level.

    I have been working at Barclays Shared Services

    Pros

    Good for starters. The BFSS department is worthwhile. RT is great for starters. The class of people working is good. Academy coaches are cool bunch. BAU managers are typical managers. Salary is paid on the dot by 8PM on 28th of the month. The set of beliefs are foundation for any good personality. Overall a good experience until you are happy.

    Cons

    RT is monotonous. Over time nothing is left to learn. Tedious trainings for the process but no certified training. Transport department is inefficient and seldom annoying. Negligible global exposure. Just a part of Barclays, not completely Barclays UK standard. Food at Noida 2 is pathetic(you'll agree from day one). Never employee centric. Just a cost center. Don't expect huge exposure or package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve the work life balance. Please be more employee centric. Introduce some non process trainings or self development trainings. Treat the lower hierarchy group as humans and not a mere resource.
