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.

Great place to work and learn
Consultant, Training Lead (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 21, 2013
A typical day included reviewing all of the project plans for the US Cash Rollout Programme, meetings with colleagues in US and London to discuss project progress, outlining what needs to be completed, reviewing issues and possible solutions.

I learned a lot about how large projects are managed and what is needed for successful system implementations.

Coworkers were very cooperative and easy to work with
There was nothing really hard about the job, however you must be adept at multi-tasking and taking the initiative to learn new software.

The most enjoyable part was having the opportunity to learn and work with such knowledgeable people.
