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

Pros

Generally good staff
CEO (Bob) is great in all aspects except continuing with many mediocre one and two downs just because of a false sense of loyality

Cons

Very Political - Too much groupism - based on which company people came from
None of original Barclays culture is remaining - we have thrown out the baby with the bath water

Advice to Management

Get a proper 360 done for your one downs - before they bring you down

    I have been working at Barclays full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good structured processes, and teams. Strategic systems, and well defined teams, which makes working here enjoyable. I have seen my friends at other investment banks where there are no separate teams for production support, for release, for testing. These people always end up in a fire fighting more and life is more stressful. Processes are almost none at other places, which also makes life tough in the long run.

    Cons

    Bonuses have been very bad in last two years.

    Advice to Management

    Salary structures need to be better aligned with the markets, specially at the Analyst and the AVP levels.
