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

Pros

lots of decision making in your hands unlike service industry
work culture is ok, much different that service industry
work from home is available at times, so definitely a plus
salary is good but need to negotiate a lot while joining
bonus depends on your manager :) so be in their good books

Cons

slow growth in career
little bit of bureaucracy
lack of transparency in appraisal process

Advice to Management

need to have more transparency

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

    Pros

    The salary and benefits offered are very generous and are very easily accessible to all levels. Internal promotion is relatively simple at lower skill levels and this quickly corresponds to increased wages.

    Cons

    Very slow at change and innovation, the company is very behind in terms of IT systems, banking systems and more importantly at attitude towards the customer. There is a very imminent presence of Senior level slogans that do not materialise in employee eyes. Operations are too widely dispersed, approaching diseconomies of scale.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of promoting meaningless slogans seek to get it right for the customer, this will bring you most business. Change the focus away from cost reduction but more towards revenue maximisation - by definition this is more expansive and will prevent losing skilled employees and outsourcing operations that should be domestic.
