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

Pros

Lots of opportunities if you're in one of the "target" front office business groups like structured products teams, equities research & distribution, wealth (mostly in Asia). Tries to create perception of a growing organization to boost morale.

Cons

Creating strong controls, process improvement, retaining key staff still comes second to making money and playing internal games. Budgets are tight now so any improvements are met with make-do attitude.

Advice to Management

Re-think the business model internally first because you already know what's wanted externally.
