My day was in the main part self managed. I was given a casework allocation and would be expected to successfully work and close eight cases in a day, although this could be frequently unobtainable. The higher management of the department frequently changed but were seldom seen. Each new head bringing in a new 'vision' and 'journey' for us all as a path for what was in the most part a means to achieve their own personal ambitions. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the changes each new head brought which never made the job easier for the people who had to actually do it.
Anyone who has worked there will tell you the best part of Barclays was the people, the people that you worked with and the friendships that you forged. Unfortunately, the best part of a job should be more than just the people.
