    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

    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.
