Good place to start your career with

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Like any firm of its size, it is good for your resume. Whether or not you learn will only depend on your own initiative and urge to learn.People who learn not to take too many responsibilities will enjoy the benefits and salary offered by the firm.The ones who are dedicated and want to do everything perfectly will struggle with work getting dumped on them and not being recognised for the same in turn.Overall a decent place to work with if you know how to balance your work and life and set boundaries.

Pros

Good pay, Weekends off, Work from home during pandemic, Decent amount of paid leaves, Parental leave, Insurance, Free transport and food if you're working on-site

Cons

Lack of work life balance, Lack of visibility of end to end processes which hinders deep diving into a specific topic

Productive

not at all good. Better decide. Some people have horrible communication especially from down south. They are not even able to understand what is being said about. Especially at the time of reading mails, they are dumbstuck and doesn;t know what to say about. Very difficult with these people. HR completely failed to identify this skill and bought in people who are not worth at all. Really favouritism by top management who are expecting something from the people who they hire for.

Pros

all good

Cons

all bad

Good company for Intern, but not very advanced project given, project given was just basic

Overall good company for Intern to start career, but project given is basic. Project work does not goes to production in many cases. Laptop is not provided for virtual internship, but pay is very good. Management is very busy for interns to give time. So it will be very relaxed, well paid experience for you.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

No proper management

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.

Good company

Company is good to work with. It has good work life balance and policies but they lack on paying employees as per their skills. If you want to settle in a company with not much of salary raise expectations then barclays it is.

Great for people at junior levels, it gets too crowded at the top!

Firm has a great approach towards flexibility & people with special needs. Work can be great depending on the division you work in. There is job security though.However the firm is not able to decide if it wants to become a nimble & more efficient version of itself.All the attempt in that direction is marred by people who either:1. Don't want to challenge the bureaucracy and call spade a spade.2. Have spent too much time in this firm thus are resistant to any sort of change.3. Name calling - people want to put out the senior MDs name to get their work done. This leads to all sort of problems for everyone.

Pros

Work life balance, medical and other benefits are great.

Cons

Bueacracy, marred by politics. Beyond VP is worst.

Productive and Fun workplace

Working with Barclays has always been a good experience. I still miss its culture. Transport services are really good. Meal provided by the company does not have good taste may be due to vendor.

Pros

Cons

long hours

Extremely Professional and Competitive work environment

Barclays is a world renowned bank and being a part of it makes me a proud employee of the company.Although the duration wasn't long and due to personal reasons I had to quit the job however I always learnt new things everyday during my tenure and integrity and deliverables were always our top priorities.

Pros

Free dinner

Cons

Less spacious

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..

Pros

Cab

Cons

Long hrs. Less breaks. No time for extra learnings.. unnecessary pressure no flexibility
