    I have been working at Barclays full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best bank I have worked with. Company and colleagues are very helpful and supportive, can be quite laid back as long as though you get your work done and don't abuse the the rules.

    Cons

    Not as well paid as I'd like.

    Pros

    Good training structure, helpful staff, decent pay compare to its competitors.

    Cons

    Poor training managers, rush you and even intimidate you by using extremely offensive language, not competent. Unfortunately, mortgage advisor team leader show lack of support too and throw you in deep end.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the training to leader to show more patience and be a bit more courteous to its staff especially to minority, there are clear discrimination within the company and these training g leader who hold workshops to train mortgage advisors needs to go back on drawing boards, they’re still living in a colonial times. Disgraceful
