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

Pros

Company size, globally distributed, all financial markets being worked specially after aqcuisition of lehman brothers after crisis.

Cons

Despite of being Euro company, in other locations the european style is not propagated.
Third party software is more used than in house development, which can introduce dificulties to have substantial advantagens compared to competitors.

    I worked at Barclays full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A lot of very good people who really want the business to succeed. Still a green field in a lot of respects with regards to the equity business.

    Cons

    Influx of "Lehman" culture as all but destroyed collabrative and meritocratic enviroment. Lot of investment undertaken but with very minimal return has meant more than most sell side shops current staff are very nervous of their positions and protect their business potentially to the deprement of the larger Barclays brand.

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff and their input.


  2. "Good overall experience"
