Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Barclays full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Staff was great - smaller company resulted in closer relationships. People had lunch together or went out for drinks.

Cons

After Lehman bankruptcy purchase, staff was too large. Not as many personal relationships, especially after all the layoffs.

Advice to Management

Lehman purchase was a mistake. The company had a history of growing organically. It worked in the past and should have continued the tradition.
