Featured Review

Current Employee - Project Manager

I have been working at Barclays full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- Big company, lots of internal moves possible - salary in banking higher than other industries - good benefits - in general, nice people

Cons

- it’s a bank, we are here to make money and we’ll move jobs to cheaper locations as and when we can - we work long hours. However, we do get paid well for them - who you know becomes very... important if wanting promotion. Again however, when high salaries are involved is anywhere else really different!?!

Advice to Management

You have got the hybrid working setup in quite a good place. Each department doing what works for them. In light of the market being so hot for jobs, having a very good hybrid setup puts you in a... great position of hopefully lower attrition. Keep going

Cons

Too much money can’t spend it all

Advice to Management

Keep giving us bigger bonus despite the state of the economy largely due to our reckless and investment
