Most Helpful Positive Review

Former employee - Associate

Strong culture in US businesses which is also a growth area of the company. May feel remote from senior leadership in London at times (both good and bad implications)

Most Helpful Critical Review

Former employee - Senior Vice President

Organizational culture lacks trust; employees are afraid to speak up. Perceived lack of fairness and transparency into role/project assignments, promotions and compensation processes. Lack of equity across organization; i.e., certain title levels, geographies, roles, etc. seem to be favored over others. Lack of clarity into organizational vision, direction and strategy. Inadequate and ineffective communication across organization - top/down, bottom/up, peer-to-peer.

STOP THE CHOPPING. PLAY FOR LONG TERM

Current employee - Group Managing Director and/or Partner

Intellectually challenging, need to be a self starter.

Collaborative culture

Former employee - Managing Director

There is a potential need to reduce the face culture in the organization. Also having a stronger CEO who understands investment banking so that a more coherent strategy can be put in place and give a chance for talent to flourish.

Former employee - Managing Director

Be prepared to go the extra mile. Don't expect things to be handed to you rather go and find the opportunities yourself. If you do so, reward and support will be very forthcoming. Stay in the background and even if you ate great at your job nobody will care.

Former employee - Managing Director

Work hard, play hard but always remember to try and be first.

Former employee - Vice President

You were given a lot of latitude to do your job so you could learn quickly. Unfortunately, the culture was a little to cliquey.

Former employee - Vice President

A little too cliquey for me

Former employee - Managing Director

The history, strength of balance sheet and global ambition.

Former employee - Managing Director

Work culture was hard working, fun but cut-throat.

Former employee - Associate

I was part of the iShares business at BGI (Barclays Global Investors) - a group that was given entrepreneurial support to innovate and a great culture.

Current employee - Analyst

Company needs more organised social events.

Current employee - Analyst

Be open and honest always! Its a bank that really cares about its conduct and values.

Current employee - Analyst

Very collaborative, it has a family feel.

Former employee - Senior Vice President

Articulate the business direction more clearly so that employees on the margins can best evaluate their options.

Former employee - Senior Vice President

Still struggling massively to get the US-UK culture thing straight, and still undergoing investment bank vs consumer bank woes near the top of the house. Do not expect much incentive comp or stability until this gets fixed.

Former employee - Senior Vice President

Very Theory X, and extremely adversarial in terms of adopting innovative technology. Colleagues and peers, however, were terrific.

Former employee - Vice President

Be ready to revel to London
