Recommends
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Flexible work culture
Pay on par with most IT companies
Constant employee feedback measuring at company level
Encourages employee participation at all levels
Lot of internal openings for movement/promotion
Yearly Leave Allowance

Cons

Specific to business unit I worked with especially about onshore stakeholders:
Racially motivated, treats Indian counterparts as low grade people
Concentrating core development work onshore
Too much interference in local management
Your major time is lost in meetings rather than focusing on actual work

Company level:
No focus on location strategy in Pune
Most processes marred with bureaucracy
Lack of standard processes across business units
Senior staff within company not open to change in work culture
Appraisal process is murky and lacks clarity and direction at site level
No involvement of HR in handling employee grievance/issues after induction
Internal movements not flexible, leads to career stagnation

Advice to Management

High time company establishes a firm identity of it's own while operating as a captive unit, a lot of money is being spent on employee welfare and other stuff however the employee is already missing out of that equation
