Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Barclays full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

there were extra activities outside the work place that led to knowing more about the environment around us creating awareness.

Cons

concentration of alot of power to some individuals which sometimes made the working environment abit frustrating because that powerled to the whims of some individuals being met, some of which were ridiculous.

Advice to Management

To open more lines of communication with staff to get more feedback and directly consult with groundstaff.
