    Current Employee - Vice President in London, England

    I have been working at Barclays Capital full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good chairs, great given the time you spend in them
    - SeamlessWeb deliveries, for those late nights
    - Friendly people, many colleagues genuinely sitting in the same sinking boat
    - Good learning experience, depending on your team

    Cons

    - No reward for loyalty. Management would much rather pay large guaranteed bonuses (deferred from other banks) to "A-Team" recruits from other big banks, who often turn out to add limited value.
    - Limited senior management knowledge. As a trader, I have to seek approvals from managers who are clueless about the product, market and risk being discussed. As it is easier to say "no", this leads to significant missed opportunities.
    - No link between proposed culture and compensation. The "RISES" philosophy (Respect-Integrity-Service-Excellence-Stewardship) is a bit of a sideshow when it comes to rewarding performance, which is driven more by politics than by performance.
    - Inefficient business set-up. Head-count often unduly high because risk is split across more desks/businesses than required, compared to other banks. Leads to (a) risk not being pooled together to be optimally managed, (b) more headcount with less responsibility and less potential for progression, as well as the wrong people being made redundant.
    - Internal IT systems off-the-shelf and around 15 years outdated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage feedback from your employees. Make 360 reviews compulsory for better performance measurement. Don't start cultural initiatives when incentives are still only related to profit: it wastes time and confuses people.
