I have been working at Barclays Capital as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Good pay, people are relatively friendly to work with, not as beaureucratic as other IBs I've worked in

Cons

No staff benefits - i.e. no teabags or milk! everyone has to keep stashes of teabags, sugar, salt, pepper in their drawers, it's ridiculous

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Little things like some snacks or employees benefits like team events make people happier when you don't give them bonuses

Recommends
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO
