Probably the worst company I have worked for!!!

Corporates & Intermedaries (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsBarclays Wealth brand - looks good on your CV
Good work/life balance
time off - when requested
people are friendly
job progression - but only if you are like by management (all for the wrong reason)

Consmanagement absolute joke !
No communication skills, more politics then the british government!
unskilled people, there are too many people that are not skilled in their jobs (inclusive of management)
salary is are better off working in a retail store.....and lest not forget bonuses...absolute joke, wanted to give my bonus back to the bank.
Barclays wealth does not recieve the same benefits like the investment banking arm
communication is poor (im sure I said that already)
very stingy - we have to buy our own tea/coffe/sugar (guess i should be lucky that they provide the hot water)
too sales focus and not customer focused
No training provided on systems
unfair personal development grading absolute shocker of a company...........!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementSet realistic targets and concentrate on client service
listen to your employees and give feedbak
improve on communication
Please redevelop personal development grading - as it is clearly not working
Bring employees salary in line with other wealth management companys as we are well below market
This year you will see ALOT of employees leave wealth management, due to the low morale and there is no incentive to stay.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
