    I worked at Barclays

    Pros

    It really depends on team to team and manager to manager but in my case it provided me to think independently and take decisions indepently.

    Cons

    At times it looks too bureaucratic. They should provide more internal opportunities for employees being laid off.

    Advice to Management

    To be more people centric. To be more sensitive towards emp being impacted by layoffs especially the HR guys!!!!!
