"Good support network, diversified culture"

No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Barclays full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Chance to work in a truly diversified working environment, good support provided by the managers. Learning is encouraged. Opportunities to interact with some of the brightest people in the industry.

Cons

Lack of direction at the moment, lack of transparency to junior staff. Long working hours are expected and a norm, depending on the team you are in.

    "Boring and under utilised"

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

    Pros

    - The job security was good, something I appreciate more now in these hard times
    - location to a certain perspective (Canary Wharf); being exposed to a big network very easily

    Cons

    - Very slow growth in the beginning, I was literally sitting around desperately looking for ways to utilise myself and feeling wretched that they weren't using my skills or teaching me anything. I felt I would have to stick it out for 3-4 years before I could even touch the next level
    - Because I was coming off a Barclays graduate scheme they got me on a very low salary and wouldn't raise it.
