I worked at Barclays full-time

Pros

Nice offices, looks good on your CV.

Cons

It is possible to have a really great career at Barclays if you are prepared to climb over others to get to where you want to be.
However having worked in various departments, you cannot trust your colleagues, as the culture is very dog-eat-dog. I have seen many people bullied out of the business.
This is not typical of large corporates in my experience.
