    Pros

    This is about Prague (Czech Republic) development office of BarCap. Once you get passed the 3rd party recruiter company, where the initial process might be very different, BarCap inverview and hiring process is quite established - everything is happening fast enough, always as agreed with the applicant and on purpose

    Cons

    nonearCap is usually requiring prooven experience in certain technologies, like SQL/T-SQL, multithreading, etc. and they are seriously asking about it on interviews and are canceling appli

    A respectful organization

    I worked at Barclays full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Barclays provides you with a complete mix of experience, whether on the personal level or the technical one. What hou get from working there is far beyond your monthly salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Barclays is a very competitive environment, you be good, you get rewarded, you slow down, you miss the train. Some of their 3rd world countries branches might be suffering a bit from the lack of proper and fair management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an insider eye on your branches around the globe, sometimes general reports don't reveal the real hidden problems.

    Pros

    People are awesome here. Loved working for them; the only reason I left was to move abroad. Great exposure to the whole bank and get a great overview of how the whole industry works. Management communicates well and creates and encourages opportunities.

    Cons

    In-house training is often preferred over external training even when the external training gives you something tangible to take away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take into account external training benefits more to bring more into the organisation
