I worked at Barclays as a contractor (Less than a year)

Lack of Project/Program Governance. Project Teams are not accountable and there is no transparency to project stakeholders.

Hire great project managers that are good leaders and excellent communicators.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Offer a very competative salary within sector, good working environment, adequate pension scheme, very friendly approachable professional staff. Work life balance.

    Cons

    In my experience recieved no real appropriate training to keep up to date with the changes being made in my areas of technology thus feeling over the years as de-skilled.

    Advice to Management

    All the off shoring and constant restructuring is loosing valuable dedicated members of staff and placing remaining staff with uncertainty and seeking alternative deemed safer jobs with other companies.


  2. "Good for Money but lots of politics and not quiet favourable environment."
