    I worked at Barclays full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great office environment in Singapore with intelligent, hardworking, and mostly nice staff. Good base pay and not a bad work life balance once you are established. Management are accommodative and flexible.

    Cons

    The occasional prima donna who you have no choice but to work with. Small teams are often very protective of their turf and reluctant to collaborate, maybe reflecting the fear of being the next to go on the chopping block in the annual firing rounds.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fire good people just because you need to fill a quota (only to rehire shortly after), then maybe people would be less political and more willing to collaborate.
