    Pros

    Good employee benefits at Barclays.

    Cons

    Hr is a joke and aids in anxiety. They are not there to help you they are there for the bank and solely the bank. Your complaints about bullying culture in Barclays is ignored. They in fact encourage bullying because once you report a manager for bullying and unfair treatment, they make you tell this manager and this manager then moves you to another branch. The issue does not get dealt. Managers who have had grievances against them by an entire branch are just moved around to terrorise another branch. It is really horrible. There are a few gems in there from colleagues but barclays management is awful! Favouritism and Bully culture. Speak up and they get rid of you. Passed around London as if you were the problem. I left in the end because i was getting bullied for trying to be save in covid19. Forced to come to work to do telephony when you can do this at home? Telling you its just what it is however on BarclaysNow it says work from home if need be. What they preach is not what is done. Especially in the branches. Head office do not know what goes on in their branches. Clearly.

    Behind the times with tech/clothing, management lacks consistency, corporate company that pretends to be relatable, high stress with meeting targets that get moved every time you reach them.
