Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

None what so ever. Awful place to work.

Cons

Management, pressure for sales, complete disregard for anything personal.

Advice to Management

Stop being so uptight. Your sales are great, but remember why you got the holidays you did and who you should thank. Also, if a member of your staff passes away - SHUT THE BRANCH AND LET THE REST OF YOUR STAFF ATTEND THE FUNERAL.

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

    Pros

    Some smart people. Initiation of a mentoring program has been good, but growth can be difficult.

    Cons

    You will be micro-managed and misled about your compensation. The company, especially in Finance is way too top heavy. Directors dont have a clue about the mis-management that is going on a level or 2 below them

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about your people and dont stare at the clocks
