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 5 years

    Pros

    Global bank with top five market share. Quality environment with high achieving employees. Infrastructure focus with up to date technologies to keep competitive.

    Cons

    There are undesired redundancies in functions as well as personnel due to the size of the bank. This has created inefficiencies which stunt synergies. This limits the company's ability to remain agile and adapt to an ever changing market environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent should be nurtured and grown from within, with the hope that this will instill a sense of ownership and pride for employees that climb in seniority which will be passed on by them to their own staff.
