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

    Pros

    In my experience Barclays Capital has been a fun place to work on a day to day basis, people are mostly laid back and good work /life balance is encouraged.

    Exceptional performance is recognized.

    Cons

    Due to the current regulatory environment and dismal public perception of banks, Barclays has been shrinking workforce and pay across employees. This leads to bad overall career morale.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency with employees.
