Pros

Better package compared to other organizations
Lots of leaves - 30 casual and 12 sick
Fairly good transport facility
Free breakfast

Cons

No work life balance
Managers treat resources like labors
Barclays has lot of vendor staff, so there is constant permanent vs vendor politics ongoing, your managers will never support you whereas they will treat vendor staff better than client
Hardly any vertical growth opportunities.
This being a captive organization, managers know that opportunities within the organization are less as compared to other service based companies, hence they make full use of it for their advantage and leave no stone unturned in terms of exploiting the resources

Advice to Management

Treat your permanent staff more respectfully
Provide growth opportunities to deserving candidates

    I have been working at Barclays full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    "Aura" or Barclays brand, but that is all...

    Cons

    The organization does not function. Mired in bureaucracy, irrational decision making. Gross underinvestment in critical systems and infrastructure coupled with an intransigent administrative approach. Struggling to attract advisors to grow so they make promises that they cannot and do not intend to keep. Every advisor that I spoke to that had been hired in the last yeat was extremely unhappy... miserable in fact.

    Advice to Management

    Take a critical look at yourselves. Start being honest.
