    I worked at Barclays full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A large bank with a wealth of opportunities across multiple divisions. However like all large organisations there is bueracracy when trying to get things done.

    Cons

    The culture in this organisation needs to change (as many have heard in the press). Also there is a lot of face time and working the system that goes on where managers try to look good at the expense of actually doing value add work.
