I worked at Barclays full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Was very ambitious and aggressive with great go getter culture. After the purchase of Lehman operations, there was a new energy, however not all was good.

Cons

Lost their way and after Lehman there was a large loss of the Barclays Magic and sparkle, this has led to lots of clashes at management level and caused uncertainty in the various camps in the divisions across the firm.
