Approves of CEO

Pros

The company has good and fair pay. Bonuses are ok, but not amazing. I really enjoyed the environment I worked in, I was supporting the trading floor and felt that I made a difference in the bottom line of which securities they were going to buy or sell.

Cons

The hours there are definitely long. Many times, I've taken the midnite car back, but it feels good every once in a while to remind yourself that what you do is pretty important, and during the end of the year, bonuses are fair. It really depends on how you feel the tradeoff of your personal life to your professional.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Used to be because it was a small and growing company.

    Cons

    After Lehman acquisition, not anymore. Morale is low in many departments. Lots of Lehman legacy people sitting around and not doing anything.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront about changes coming up. Make more effort to integrate IT and new business units after the merger.

    Pros

    Barclays allows for its employees to learn marketable skills and learn from senior management. The Firm provides good learning tools and utilizes employees capabilties to their fullist extent. There is pretty good work life balance although telecommuting options need to be increased in order to enable the Firm to attract top talent.

    Cons

    Management needs to greatly communication to its employees. Everyone seems to be in the dark about basic human resources and job expectation issues. There is very little human connection or concern for employee well being. Layoffs are forever biting at your heels and the morale is really low but it goes unaddressed.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees and aknowledge dedication and hard work. Have a bulletin board fr employee questions and concerns.
