    I worked at Barclays full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    some very good people trying to do good things

    Cons

    Micro managing leadership from CEO down. Narrow roles with little autonomy and scope. They make dozens of 'status hires' paying big people to do tiny jobs. Unsurprisingly these people leave in under 12 months. Appalling HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Jenkins should clear out the CEO and HRD and refresh the leadership team.

    I worked at Barclays full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work colleagues, everyone is behind you to support and work as a team. Diversity in role (depending on your job/team). Good opportunities to work on non-BAU work.

    Cons

    Managers and Management. Perceptions count for more than the work you actually do. The perception of one, appears to count for more than the perception of many. If one person (i.e a manager) thinks something, and reports it, its taken as gospel, whereas your whole team have another, its blatantly disregarded. If you have a personality, I would advise you to stay away from certain BU's in Barclays. Also, too much competition between managers to be best. My manager would frequently talk smack about the other team manager yet be all nice to their face, and also tell them things that you have spoken to them about in confidence. At times it was laughable and was noted between the entire team as being wrong (even those people who were 'pets'). Salary is OK, but bonus time they literally move the goal posts to match whatever they want. They need to stick to their objectives and if you deliver, you deserve a reward. Also - certain managers instill a god like persona. Not right to be scared of someone you work for.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the managers who do not instill the Barclays core values. Take time to actually realise that without the 'analysts' and 'assistants' the jobs wouldn't get done - and recognise people for the effort, time and passion they give to the job. If that was the case I would still be there!! Now this relates only to a small minority but I know of 8 people in one team who left because of 1 manager - yet their reasons for leaving where never pushed through to the head of the team. Always seemed to be someone else's fault - never theirs.
