      Pros

      One of the best companies I have seen, who provides such a good care to their employees, specially during COVID situation. They provide a flexible environment to work and support their employees in best possible ways. Some of the benefits that an employee get in Barclays are: * Good Increment while joining the company (Don't forget to negotiate well) * Flexible working environment * Very good perks - free transportation; free tea, coffee and soups * Annual Bonus (not included in your CTC) * Encouragement for internal job movement. IJP policy is very good. * Decent Annual Appraisal * No. of leaves are very good and there are many more. During Covid, Barclays has extended enormous facilities to the employees, such as: * Advance Salaries (which needs to be paid back in 6 months) * Increment in the medical policies * Additional Cash reimbursement for Covid treatment *Free WFH kits that includes Ergonomics Chair, Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, etc. * Transportation for Covid treatment and Oxygen Supply * A dedicated toll free for all Covid related queries, and many more.

      Cons

      The only Con I found is that Barclays does not cover the Parents in the medical policies they enroll the employees. You have to pay the premium separately for your parents under VPA.
