    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Barclays full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Adequate remuneration, excellent hygiene factors (offices), good training and good trainers and they did actually spend a lot of time on the "culture change"/"values" change. I was also very impressed with the clarity of the organisational structure and responsibilities. I was always clear what to do and who to deliver results to and was confident when handing over to other team.

    Cons

    Little or no opportunities outside of London (1CP), average bonus payments (as % of base).
