    Pros

    The London office is full of outstanding professionals, creative thinkers who all adopt a collaborative approach to resolving clients needs. There is no concept of pushing sales through, the bottom line in the London office is to serve the needs of clients.

    Cons

    The New York office, needs a lot of work. There is a consistent battle of client coverage and hard sales. Many people are unhappy and the environment is cut throat.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to mid senior level and junior staff members - there are many things that are being done in London that could easily be replicated to an extent in the New York Office. The success of Barclays in previous years has been attributed to the brilliant people, the New York office need not adopt hierarchy and cut-throat-ism to succeed. Understand the reasoning for turnover - there are many clues in the exit interviews that provide solutions to issues.
