Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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
