    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Most people were easy to work with. Salary was OK.

    Cons

    No real direction given by management. IT and systems are so far behind and not willing to spend the $$ to do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    You need to go all in in specific areas/commodities and cannot do things only half way. Sr. Management also needs to get a true pulse of the ones carrying the load. People of all levels need to be involved in the decisions.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The firm is on it's way to reinvent itself. Senior managers are putting innovation as the primary target for everyone within the firm. On the technology end, you'll notice themes such as mobile, social media on the forefront of every town hall. Definitely a great place to challenge the status quo.

    Cons

    While trying to catch up to other firms, there's always the dreaded "legacy systems" everyone has to deal with. Also since it is a bank, regulator scrutiny is constant. Making everything processes heavy.
