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

Pros

Looks good on your resume but that is about it.

Good place to work if your title matters to you more than the actual work you are going to do.

Cons

Very bureaucratic and disorganized place. Lots of mediocre folk parading the little knowledge they have. Technology is really outdated, makes life a lot harder. Big time double standard when it comes to telling our clients how amazing we are doing but then your pay sucks. Admin staff is stretched beyond limits. Ridiculous cost cuts take away everything and anything that was covered. That includes no alcohol at "office parties". Zero work life balance.

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

    Pros

    There were alot of talented people at the time, but the efforts were not being managed correctly. There was no strategic position or vision. Barclay's was beginning to take over the management and resources to refocus the business.

    Cons

    At the time, many of the people were scrambling to CYA and the environment was dog eat dog.
