I have been working at Barclays Capital full-time for more than a year

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 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.

    I worked at Barclays Capital

    Pros

    Laid back work culture, average workforce, easy to perform and shine, promotes internal mobility

    Cons

    Very unstable, layoffs every few months. Almost impossible to get promoted even after good work, long queues and politics involved
