    I have been working at Barclays full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great company to start your career in, with good training programs and opportunities to experience and grow new skills. Has the potential to be very successful

    Cons

    Very performance driven organisation, and lately not the safest place to work. Have offshored a lot of work from the UK.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employee's and not on the drive to succeed


  2. "Great place to work if you are good enough"

    They hire the smartest people in the region. Lots of people to learn from
    Pay is very good
    Work/life balance (i go home around 18:00 everyday)
    Projects are interesting

    Cons

    If you expect to do just an average job and get rewarded you'll get fed up
    Some managers in the US have a bit of a attitude
    Some red tape that you get in all big companies

    Advice to Management

    Get the US managers to adopt the same approach as the London ones
