I have been working at Barclays full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

My experience at Barclays has been really good. They work on the principle of meritocracy.

Cons

It depends on the role. So far i have been satisfied with my job but it gets difficcult to go up the ladder when you work in small teams.

    I worked at Barclays full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is really nice if you stay in a nice team as the teams and the culture is very different from team to team and every team recruit separately.

    Cons

    You have to work long hours and as in several big investment banks you do not always know for what purpose.


  2. "Very profit driven company with some bad UK managers who dont deserve to be there"

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

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere, nice colleagues and independent work and responsibility

    Cons

    Top down communication is poor. Usually news are held back until the last minute which affects staff morale and lots of rumours are created
    Lots of infighting between teams and country divisions. Favouritism is a problem

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication and care more about yr employees. Employee Mobility is constantly trumpeted around but in reality its up to an individual manager to push for mobility. If shes keen to get a move for her charges she will do it, but if shes not too keen, it affects us. THey could also do more on mobility but there are mindset barriers. EG if A want to move to B''s role, and B wants to move to A's role, one has to leave first then it can happen. The management wont just take a poractive stance and switch them, for example.
