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

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility in terms of work schedule. Many people work from home sometimes. The work is interesting if you get into the right team. Great training programs. Some internal mobility for employees who have been working at the company for a bit of time.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency from upper management. Promotion politics. Lack of compensation for employees who perform above expectations. Lack of ability to retain talent and innovate. Every week, you see a person leave the team or a new contractor being hired onto the team - causes lack of teamwork and overall knowledge of projects.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate people according to their performance. Don't treat your employees as interchangeable parts.
