    I have been working at Barclays full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid strategy with realistic goals.
    Many normal people (that is actually not the norm on Wall Street).
    I am given the means to succeed.
    I am surrounded by competent people who genuinely want to contribute. I feel I don't have to do it all by myself.
    I have the best flexibility / autonomy so I can care for my children while having a very big say in the strategy of my team.

    Cons

    At times, it seems European banks are at a competitive disadvantage vs. US banks. It makes it sometimes harder to win business.
    Barclays may be more risk averse than some US peers.
