    I have been working at Barclays full-time

    Pros

    Solid pay, decent pretense of a meritocracy and generous if they fire you. Good international connections.

    Cons

    You're not going to get paid as much as the American banks, but the public hates you more.

    Advice to Management

    At least pretend to be optimistic - we know it isn't 2007 any more but we are looking for you to lead by example.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to experience other divisions and access to expansive training. Good performance related bonus for entry level position.

    Cons

    Tended to be a bit results driven, and at times did not take into account anything but statistics, although over the course of employment this did improve.
