    Pros

    Wonderful Brand name. Excellent Working culture.

    Cons

    Their businesses exited a few countries while still doing well. This I felt was unusual strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Patience in Emerging Nations helps a ton. Need to be in business in such countries (India, Dubai, Russia) for longer duration to actually exploit the potential of business opportunity.

    I have been working at Barclays

    Pros

    It is better to work for Barclays overseas, rather than in India. In US/UK, the company has a decent brand name, and benefits from a strong local leadership team in the major geographies that it operates in. Conservative in its market posturing, it is doing reasonably well from a financial and strategy points of view.

    Cons

    In India, the main issue for Barclays is terrible leadership. Lack of transparency, ethics, professionalism. Performance appraisal is simply an eye-wash. Ratings and bonus are not determined by (a) the quality of work you do (b) the value you have generated for the company, but by other factors (read nepotism, cronyism, bias). HR best practices and leadership best practices are routinely flouted, because you can get away with the same. There is a tremendous culture of change resistance, innovation simply cannot happen because it will either be stalled because of vested interests, or, because leadership support will not be there. Strategy and management changes too frequently. Inadequate technical training for high end, high skill jobs.

    Pros

    Less demanding and Generous leave policy (30 annual leaves + sick leave). People agenda, Recommend for people looking for retired lifestyle

    Cons

    Low on values and talent. Lack of responsibility flows from the top. Projects get delayed every time and no one is responsible. Slow paced. Frequent changes at management level which reflects in regular changes to vision and strategy. This is not the place for ambitious people it could be very frustrating. Terrible work culture and no openness to learn from other banks. Too much importance for people agenda

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take initiative, have clear vision and strategy, lead from the front, recognize talent and give importance to genuine contribution, veterans suck

    Doesn't Recommend
