    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.


  2. Helpful (1)

    "Interesting work, very political, constant change"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Massive budgets, huge desire to do things better and to show that they're ahead of the competition. Bonuses for top performers are great.

    Cons

    Everyone needs to sign-off the smallest detail so slow to adapt. Salary increases for internal moves tiny if at all. No recognition of external market rates. Bonus ratings fit forced distribution so more about who likes you than what you actually achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise that your best people aren't necessarily the loudest.
