    Pros

    Decent salary and decent benefits, that's about it.

    Cons

    Horrible management, specifically in the global technology and infrastructure organization. Basically all NY employees and management are puppets for the leadership in London and have no say on what goes on. There is no communication between teams to know what's going on. Management is very narrow minded and set on a path they have come up with in some back room and will not accept any detours to that path. Very little opportunity for growth unless you move to London. Management is on a cost cutting rampage and at our clients expense think it's a good idea to outsource our jobs to India, Lithuania, and Kiev. Big mistake! Yes, you can get 10 employees for the price of 1 but in the long run it hurts the business and gives an overall poor impression of technology at the firm

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on retaining top talent where it counts. Outsourcing does not work! Talk to the business for input and stop being so arrogant that you are making the right decisions without their input. It is commonly preached that Barclays is a meritocracy and has an open door policy with management. This is false(at least as it pertains to the Global Technology Org). Make the work environment for junior employees one that they are not constantly looking over their shoulders waiting for a pink slip. Stop with the politics.
