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

Pros

The folks here in the firm are committed to delivering quality business to our clients (internally or externally).
Everyone is pretty much focused on getting the results and achieving the projects that were set up.

Cons

Quality of certain employees are lacklustre. The lack of quality in certain departments are a stumbling block for the firm as some departments who wishes to drive the firm forward are tugged behind by these departments.

Advice to Management

Hire and retain quality people (especially those with knowledge, drive and grew up with the company) instead of hiring mass but low quality employees.

    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.
