Decent place to work but not the best at this moment.

Fun place to work, not much upward mobility for tech
Assistant Vice President - US Equities RTB (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 24, 2017
I generally enjoyed working there. It was crazy being in a giant building where everyone worked for the same company. They had a gym in the building which made my life a lot easier. Didn't feel like they valued their technical staff too much. More seen as overhead.

barclays review
Vice President (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 18, 2017
Barclays is competing in a tough industry and there has been a great deal of leadership turnover at the firm in the past, making the direction somewhat unknown. On the positive side, the people who are there are nice and the firm can leverage a strong history in the US.

competitive environment
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJApril 13, 2017
My experience at Barclays was one of mixed reactions. Worked with intelligent, career-driven individuals where I learned and taught a great deal. Last four years were somewhat socially and psychologically challenging, due in large part to the great recession of 2008. With hiring, pay raise, and bonus freezes, coupled together with increasingly trying work schedules from personnel cutbacks, stress levels were quite high and moral was not at a level conducive to an enjoyable work environment.
Pros
Working with extremely talented individuals
Cons
stifled advancement opportunities

Head of Delivery & Risk Assurance (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 7, 2017
Barclays has offered me a diverse set of opportunities to work at a renowned international Bank, that still manages to feel like a much smaller operation. The professionalism of the staff in all corners of the globe is a testament to the quality of the entire organization.

Fair place to work but will improve once offshoring slows down
VP - Securitized Products MO (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 5, 2017
Barclays was a great place to work before the credit crisis. Since the crisis offshoring & nearshoring initiatives were aggressively implemented creating a culture with low morale. Today offshoring/nearshoring activities have slowed down a bit and the culture is now starting to get a tad better. Bonuses in middle office are fair compared to the rest of Wall Street banks. The best thing about the job is that management is open to employees ideas vs. my way only mentality.
Pros
Work-life balance, job mobility
Cons
Compensation
