Pros

Good training, and the chance to rotate between various functions within technology.

Cons

Slow growth and advancement, learning stagnates after a while. A confusing, inconsistent performance review system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the performance review system, so that it isn't dependent on a manager's peculiarities.

    I worked at Barclays Capital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Global bank with top five market share. Quality environment with high achieving employees. Infrastructure focus with up to date technologies to keep competitive.

    Cons

    There are undesired redundancies in functions as well as personnel due to the size of the bank. This has created inefficiencies which stunt synergies. This limits the company's ability to remain agile and adapt to an ever changing market environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent should be nurtured and grown from within, with the hope that this will instill a sense of ownership and pride for employees that climb in seniority which will be passed on by them to their own staff.

    I worked at Barclays Capital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Until recently Barclays had mostly escaped the pitfalls of the sub-prime mortgage crisis and had kept a clean image making it a great place to work in terms of morale. Pay was above average.

    Cons

    Lots of discombobulation after the Lehman takeover. Management structure was all over the place (as to be expected after a takeover) and operating on a global platform never seemed to be within reach due to regional politics -- both before and well beyond the Lehman integration.
