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

    Pros

    A few of the one and two starred reviews gave a refreshingly candid depiction. I can only add:

    * leading edge valuation technology
    * reliably repetitive work, if that floats your boat
    * bright, knowledgeable people
    * looks good on CV for some reason

    The above features can be used wisely, but a clean exit is recommended if the cons below conflict with your personality.

    Cons

    Lack of humanity due to
    * severe fixation on political advancement/strategizing
    * ridiculous cost-cutting (e.g., tea is not free)
    * location in Scary Wharf
    * lack of team collaboration
    * lack of acknowledgement of effort
    * employees lacking a basic sense of cognizance and humanity

    Bad internal prospects/day-to-day work due to
    * below market rates; cards will be shown upon your exit
    * lack of proper project work
    * lack of connections to other FO/risk functions
    * steady flow of repetitive work

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be the next JPM finance machine. Be happy your LIEBOR fixing fine was so laughably small; buy your buddies at the FSA a bottle of champagne.
