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

    Pros

    Rotational program will allow you to see different parts of the bank and gain expertise in various areas of compliance--a large benefit when starting a career in a new area.

    Cons

    You can get stuck in a bad rotation and spend a year doing something that does not aid your career goals. Inconsistant supervision of program and little consistancy in experience.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the teams grads work in actually need them/provide a plan of how they will be used and what they will learn.
