Employee - Vice President

Great working environment

Employee - Vice President

Multi cultural environment

Employee - Managing Director

Cut back on bureaucracy and go back to basic and common sense to mitigate risk and adopt ethical behavior at all levels

Employee - Vice President

Would have said a better strategic direction if asked several months ago but I like Jes Staley and his action plan. Obviously greater compensation would be better but at least part of it is at the whim of the market. One thing that bothers me is that it's still tough to get titular promotions at the higher levels because a lot of people were made Director/MD in the past and I think managements view is that there are "too many" so the backlog of those deserving it is getting larger every year

Employee - Vice President

It's a large corporation so there is sometimes dumb red tape. And it's sometimes frustrating that earnings (personally and at the bank) are impacted by stupid settlements from years past. But hopefully we are beginning to turn a corner

Employee - Vice President

Culture depends on he department and the team. My equity team is up and coming so our morale is high but not 10 paces away is a miserable team. So it's hard to say something other than "mixed" overall

Employee - Managing Director

At Spain Barclays had developed a strong business model very well adapted to the Spanish market. We all know where we want to go and had the support of the local management. Quite different was the Group management.

Employee - Associate

Culture depends on the team, but it is a highly competitive meritocracy, with smaller teams being friendly and collegial.

Employee - Vice President

The place has very low morale. There is no culture of achievement. Mostly "another day, another dollar". Very poor attitude on all levels.

Employee - Vice President

nobody cares about doing the right thing for the company or clients. The efficiency is very low - I would guess 10-15% of what could be achieved.

Employee - Analyst

Racist culture Only white people get ahead

Employee - Analyst

Barclays is not very good at taking care of its employees at all levels. If you are not making the millions you are not important. The company would not run without the lower level staff and that should be recognized.

Employee - Analyst

If you are not one of the top money makers, no one will care much about you or your career.

Employee - Analyst

Good old boy network where if you are not making millions for the company you are not important.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Biggest problem was the "long distance" people from the U.K. trying to run a U.S. broker-dealer. They justified many decisions based on the requirements of the regulatory bodies in Europe, rather than the U.S.

Employee - Senior Vice President

If you want career growth, challenging opportunities, autonomy or advancement and you live in the U.S., do not work for Barclays.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Barclays employees from the U.K. were condescending and uncooperative to employees in the U.S. They promoted their own, over better qualified U.S. employees, cut benefits for people in the U.S. and set up an "us vs. them" mentality among employees. The culture toward employees in the U.S. (many of whom had been with the firm long before Barclays bought Lehman) was "you are too stupid/incompetent to have any authority or be trusted to make any decisions".

Employee - Associate

The bank has slowed down on its customer service.

Employee - Associate

Poor work culture

Employee - Senior Vice President

If given the chance, I would change/ improve DIVERSITY. EMPLOYEE ADVOCACY.
