Nice people, decent pay

I have been working at Barclays Capital

Pros

Decent salary, fairly relaxed and friendly working culture. People were nice, the team I was in had some really experienced people, so you could learn a lot.

Cons

The operations were not running very well... so you ended up chasing them up most of your time. Pretty tiring after a while.

    I have been working at Barclays Capital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - good salary
    - nice offices
    - nice people, relaxed environment (in comparison to London)
    - interesting GF project, managing myself and doing what I believe is correct (DEPENDS on your manager!)

    Cons

    Everything depends on a project and manager, if your manager is an idiot looking just after himself, you are screwed. I worked in that kind of project for 3 years. Luckily, you can change teams :).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean your Middle/Senior managment from dicks.

    I worked at Barclays Capital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice work-life balance. Mid-level managers seem to be genuinely concerned with junior staff. Good cafeteria and in general the carpets are clean and the staff is friendly.

    Cons

    There is less than ideal deal flow at the junior level so you may have trouble switching to a buy side role if that's something that interests you.
