A great place to work, period.

Customer Service (Former Employee)

ProsThey are no longer around but I am sure Barclays will be the same way. Great pay, communication and training programs. Tons of perks and a highly well run company, very professional. Everything had its own "Lehmanized" feeling to it. The background check was highly thorough and extensive. The training was highly helpful and learning the material was fairly easy thanks to great teachers. Overall, the company was willing to work with you over hours and other accommodations, but highly frowned upon bad decision making.

ConsThey closed, so no opportunity for growth. They also did not offer me any benefits, but I believe there benefit programs are usually top notch

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work but perhaps be a little better at communicating

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
