    Pros

    Not a lot of evolution in this team, but many opportunities for internal mobility. Lots os useful internal trainings. Good amount of vacation time.

    Cons

    moving operations teams to New Jersey, not that I blame them, but this team is eventually going to be part of the move; as noted, not a lot of evolution in team itself, and bonuses are obviously limited in operations.

    I worked at Barclays full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Dynamic Working where my department allowed me to work from home 2 days a week and rotated amongst the team.

    Cons

    Bonus is a joke even if you have a Strong rating which is still below industry standards. As a result, many employees don't go the extra mile because it is pointless if management doesn't reward the dedication of hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees and reward where necessary.
