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

Pros

global company, with a very pro-active approach. Not bureaucratic, really aims to achieve and focus on high impact work. Easy to move around internally.

Cons

Very global work force, sometimes teams are speed across many time zones, so team work can be challenging. As the environment is fast paced, governance within the team can be limited.

Advice to Management

Documentation and governance is not a sexy endeavour, but is important to maintain within teams, esp when there is turnover of staff. It means not reinventing the wheel too often.

    Pros

    If you believe that you can weather out a storm, best place to test yourself.

    Cons

    Barclays Shared Services is one place where you will find that polishing your manager's apples is what works.

    The management is never transparent and has an in your face attitude when confronted and deals with these issues with high handedness. If you do not like it leave but do not expect us to be fair in our dealings with the employees.

    Bias in management decision ranging from verbal recognition to reward and recognition, even in sending people to just be a participant at an award ceremony, to sending people onshore in UK is blatant.

    You might get a top rating, appreciation from the UK head of businesses, so much so that they do not want anyone else in the team to handle their work and never let you go, but might never get any opportunity just because the management wants you to take crap or leave.
