    I worked at Barclays as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    For me location, decent rate of pay and working hours.

    Cons

    Lower to middle management did not appear to be on the same page as the corporate hierarchy. Potentially due to either the being unable to implement the overall cultural strategy due to operational reasons. Or, the culture/behaviours have not been properly embedded within all levels of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the cons and live the values.

    I worked at Barclays

    Pros

    People are helpful and there is a good knowledge base to explore more about the work.

    Cons

    Still does a bit of manual work which can be solved by employing more people who could do automation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great place to work but can become a better place if employees were given more options and projects rather than having similar project types
