Overall Reviews at Barclays
Good company but bad management
Company is good but majority of the management is corrupt and do not let you grow. It will give you work life balance and good pay but after a point the same thing will bother you as it will not give you the opportunity to grow or learn.
Productive and Employee friendly atmosphere
In my short work duration at Barclays, I enjoyed every moment, since there was lot of freedom, support and encouragement on all accounts.
Diversity and inclusion is practised like preached.
I would love to come back and work here again!

Learn and earn skill culture
happy to learn new things
Able to discover the hidden talent
work aloted made skill to become strong
Grant the skill to work efficiently .
Enjoyed the work culture
more of a homely experience
The company is good for mid range experience people like 1-3years. People work there for long period and found content with what they are doing for 4-5years. There are very few IJP's rolled out in years and millions to apply for. Overall it's a good company though to stick to if you want to grow in banking sector.
Performance are not tracked or monitored for every one.. they force people to resign whom they don’t like..
Managers on the floor are biased.. managers and TSS are not at all capable of what they have been hired/promoted for.. no extra efforts are done by the Managment to promote or groom the associates for further growth. Salary sucks.. there shud be one rule and policy for the entire firm rules. However in Barclyas it’s opposite. managements are allowed to break the rules but associates are meant to be fired in this case..
ConsLong hrs. Less breaks. No time for extra learnings.. unnecessary pressure no flexibility

Barclays is an employee friendly company which gives work life balance along with career growth
Barclays is an employee friendly company which gives work life balance along with career growth.
You have lot of opportunities to learn with licensed tools available to expand your knowledge.
It is good organization if you get work related to your skill set and obviously a good Line manager who should be working as Leader rather than boss.
It's good if you are in good team, it's worse if you are in diplomatic team
Career Enhancement at Job Place
Barclays known to be leader in ample growth opportunities .However, considering volatility in markets the agile projects and automation has come into effect.So, now competing with the automation has become little touch.Although,in this technological advanced times it gives an opportunity to compete with colleagues and systems in place in terms of bringing new ideas and more accuracy.Being competitive which keeps us as employees on our toes all the time .It helps me as a person to learn and investigate the larger aspects and impact on business .

Great place to work
Our day begins at 8 am and finish at 9 pm in the evening, very good place to work, nice colleague, amazing atmosphere for work.
I learned a lot of things in this amazing place one of them is doing more than one task in the same time, working as a part of a team working, put goals and achieved in very small time perfectly.
Our management was very professional in handling all the issues between his officers and his customers.
the day at work is quite energtic, plus the management helped me scale up the growth and learning alot. The work culture is quite impressive. All my colleague have been very supportive.
The work related at the client site was great and learnt everyday more and more. The Management was very supportive and made me learn more and more. Work culture is very competitive.

Barclays offered a relaxed working environment, however, the business was constantly changing and moving forward which I understand is necessary for business growth but was not ideal for employees with particular skill sets.

Pleasant working environment
Each day is varied and inconsistent. Barclays are undergoing major restructuring so it is difficult to know whether you will be in a job in the near future.
Consnot knowing how long you will be employed for
They have little concern for how their business decisions negatively impact their colleagues.
The business made a decision to move it's the operation to a location that is not commutable for colleagues who have been with the firm for 10+ years.
A lot of Bureaucracy
The is a ton of bureaucracy at this firm which is to be expected given the number of employees. The work life balance is great along with the community service.

Diverse and inclusive workplace
Barclays promotes an inclusive working environment where everybody is respected and accepted and their voices count. This encourages innovation and high performance.
Productive and collaborative workplace
The industry is very fast paced and demanding- which I liked for a while. However, I find myself seeking more of a work life balance and having time outside the workspace.
