Pros

Big brand name . Lots of employess. Good pay. Friendly and smalrt people to work with, but lots of competition.

Cons

Nothing really. Except for competition every else is really good. Good cafeteria to eat food and startbucks to frunk coffee.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work champs. I know Barclays will do good in the short to medium term. About the long term I am not sure.

    Pros

    good brand, some good people in front office

    Cons

    incompetent middle management, the majority of whom are dangerously underqualified to work in any position of authority within banking
    inadequate processes for almost everything
    blame culture - managers will not take responsibility for anything, backstabbing, always pass the buck to someone else
    politics are machiavelian - performance reviews in particular
    I could go on and on - i completely agree with previous review - the worst place I have ever worked

    Advice to Management

    Talk to, and listen to the needs of front office - not just statistical analysis of results - otherwise you will continue to lose all your most valuable clients and talented staff
