A good bank, but badly handles retention. Not great with flexible working arrangements and the culture can be a bit dull and non-inclusive.

OTC Clearing Collateral Specialist (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 30, 2014
Working at Barclays was a great learning experience for me as I learned many transferrable life skills. There was a lack of work life balance and individualized growth outside of specific department.

Business Development Officer
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT OFFICER (Former Employee), New JerseyJuly 4, 2014
My tenure with Barclays (now BlackRock) was very enjoyable. Barclays / iShares was truly an industry leader in their products and corporate culture. Unfortunately my time was not more with this firm due to the major restructuring they went thru once BlackRock came onto the scene. Many of my peers were also caught in the cross fire due to this downsizing.

English Bank in process of shedding its Investment Bank culture
Director, Futures Sales and Execution (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 3, 2014
Pros: good, nice, smart people
Cons: way to political. not very close to a meritocracy
Difficult environment to work in, not as a direct result of the people, but the nature of the current changes going on in the financial world. That change especially tough as it is a foreign bank that has even more onerous capital and regulatory challenges. People were smart and professional but the mission, energy, and compensation culture were jumbled – more... and ambiguous. All that I worked with were for the common cause of producing good revenue in a difficult market environment but the very management-heavy demographic (being thinned) was challenging for senior sales people such as myself. Tough to imagine them making progress in global rankings right now. – less

AVOID at all costs. Unethical and highly political work environment.
Vice President (Current Employee), New York, NYMay 29, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: read my review. basically dysfunctional, unethical, retailatory and bullying corporate culture, etc. etc. etc.
I work at Barclays Wealth Americas. This place is one of the most dysfunctional and unethical places I have ever worked at. There are two standards for employees at Barclays Wealth Americas. One group of employees are part of the "in" crowd and curry favor by openly brown nosing and backstabbing to get ahead. These employees are pretty much get away – more... with anything. You name it and they do it and get away with it. This includes fraud, theft or whatever unethical comes to mind. The other less fortunate folks try and keep their heads down and just get through the day. If you are naive enough to bring unethical conduct to the attention of senior management, you will be retaliated against, especially if it involves a manager or another "favored" person. I have seen people file complaints with Human Resources and Employee relations and get escorted out within a couple of weeks. These two departments are there for the sole purpose of protecting management. Employees are also pushed out by being given bad reviews for which there is no appeal, or being written up for imaginary violations. Employees in favor come and go as they please, or work remotely while employees out of favor get called out for leaving before 9:00 PM. Ethics and fair play are qualities that are entirely alien to this place. Basically, everything bad you read about Barclays Wealth in the press is true and doesn't even go far enough to describe the conditions here. Google "The regime of fear inside Barclays" which accurately describes the culture of fear, intimidation, bullying and mismanagement at Barclays to get an idea of what things are like for people here. – less
