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

No career advancement opportunities, poor culture
Relationship Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYMarch 16, 2014
Pros: work-life balance, people, course offerings
Cons: smt unapproachable and undervalues workforce, constant cost cutting
Poor culture firm-wide, brought on in part by constant layoffs and lack of career advancement opportunities. Senior Management is generally not very approachable and many of the more talented individuals are leaving the firm. The work-life balance is decent.

Assistant Vice President (Former Employee), New York, NYFebruary 20, 2014
As a six year employee of Barclays, I have nothing but positive things to say about the way the management staff grew me from a wide eyed college graduate to the HR professional I am today. I am proud to come from such a well known and widely praised firm, and would recommend Barclays to anyone looking for a challenging job with high rewards.
