Current Employee - Vice President in London, England

I have been working at Barclays Capital as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Good pay, people are relatively friendly to work with, not as beaureucratic as other IBs I've worked in

Cons

No staff benefits - i.e. no teabags or milk! everyone has to keep stashes of teabags, sugar, salt, pepper in their drawers, it's ridiculous

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Little things like some snacks or employees benefits like team events make people happier when you don't give them bonuses

Recommends
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Current Employee - Vice President in London, England

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

    Pros

    Very intelligent employees and a hard working environment. For those wishing to learn the traits of Investment Banking it's a great company to get exposure.

    Cons

    Really suited to a young people or people with little out of work responsibilites as there is a tendency to work very long hours. If you have commitments outside of work such as family be prepared to make sacrifices.
