sales and service adovsor (Former Employee), Premier callcentreNovember 6, 2012
Pros: onsite cafe, gym, ample free parking
Cons: not alot of help with family life, childcare let downs etc.
Premier Banking advisor, with Barclays for over 12 years. Origionally forced to sell loans whilst not telling the customer PPI was included, hence the claims now for PPI rebate. The better you sold, the harder the management were on you, It had a well you reached your targets last month attitude, why not this month. Back stabbing 2 faced management, – more... and a union that is no help, as its reps are also Barclays employers, Bum lickers get promotion, so if u have a long tongue, this should be the company for you . – less

Large Bank With Global Reach

-Scandals - recent LIBOR rates has put pressure on the bank
-Ok place to work at the present moment
-Management – more... needs to value human capital – less

Avoid them
Sr Manager (Former Employee), Wilmington DEAugust 2, 2012
Their site in DE is mis-managed to say the least, and many departments use and treat people like dogs. There are better employers out there. They will bait you into a junk yard where you will soon regret taking that offer. However, feel free to take their job if you have ABSOLUTELY no other choices, but start looking from day one (if you know it is – more... good for you). – less
