talented people and good assets

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, however bonuses are extremely low. Possibility to work with multiple groups.
    Located in the center of manhattan

    Cons

    No fair assessment of employees, very subjective and decided solely by your immediate manager.
    Very incompetent managers at the vp level.
    Directors seem to be very far removed from their groups.
    Employees at the more junior level are treated like little kids
    Very poor communication within finance

    Advice to Management

    Before promoting people to management positions please train them! And then monitor for some time. I feel that is the weakest point in the structure of Barclays
