Pros

Barclays 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)

Cons

management 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 poor.....you 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 ......................an absolute shocker of a company...........!!!

Advice to Management

Set 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.
