    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    some people are nice and polite. people respect each other.

    Cons

    you should keep on making noise about your compensation/promotions etc. otherwise nothing happens.

    Advice to Management

    have a fare promotion and compensation (linked with performance) system. I know people who do nothing and just make noises rise too quickly and ones that work hard evaluate possibilities do the correct thing fall because there is no business visibility
