    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I worked at Barclays as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being fresh out of University, it was a good name for my CV. It does provide a kick start to the career opportunities later on and people/agents do keep asking about it to this date.

    Cons

    The bank has undergone a lot of restructuring and middle and back office have suffered the most. Blame culture seems inevitable.
