    I have been working at Barclays full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, not many arrogant people around. Collaborative atmosphere. Personal account trading policy is not as stringent as some places which is great.

    Cons

    Bonus is pretty crap, though its only been one year so far. Promotions even in front office (research) tend to be very slow. Focus on cost cutting is leading to some lost productivity with no access to all the tools required. Also impact business relationships as business travel is cut down.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and promote talent faster. Also be more supportive of individual career objectives, and be open to giving internal hires priority for an open position.
