    3.0
    Former Intern - Investment Banking Summer Intern 

    I worked at Barclays

    Pros

    HR was supportive through technical issues Analysts were very forthcoming to teach me the work and offer me support for any questions I had

    Cons

    I did the internship, so there were a lot of technical issues with my virtual desktop/ I was on hold on call with IT for hours in the first week and could not get work done. I did not feel very well supported during this as no one could actually tell me when the issues will be fixed or what to do. Line manager was hardly present and clearly was not invested in my progress
