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

Pros

Barclays has excellent people with an excellent culture. I enjoyed my stint there very much. I would recommend it to my friends!

Cons

Barclays still a growing bank in Asia, hence the deal flow might not be as strong as the other bulge bracket banks yet. However, I am sure we will be able to catch up!
