The Most Innovative Retail Bank evolving into the true force for good for Customers and their local Communities.

Personal Banker (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at Barclays full-time for more than 5 years

ProsPhenomenal Positive Change that will change the face of UK Retail Banking is taking place within Barclays Bank and it is definitely on the right track to become the most customer focused high street bank with the community spirit at its heart. Anthony Jenkins' vision for the brand is the right vision and should be mirrored by the rest of the high street banks.

ConsI only wish some of the changes they are implementing within retail banking were implemented long before the recent crisis within the British banking system.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with the progressive change whilst acknowledging and rewarding the genuinely customer focused contribution made by staff within the branch network.
