Inclusive place to work with great vibe
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) –  London, England22 August 2018
Barclays is like a family. They offer great support and flexible benefits to its employees and I always felt a good vibe when walking into work and enjoyed my time there.
Management is forward thinking and is not regimented, there is a real inclusive feeling.
I struggled with work life balance and the work volume was quite large.

Personal Banker (Current Employee) –  Sunderland, Tyne and Wear21 August 2018
Love working here, fantastic pay and benefits package, only criticism I have is that Team Leaders do not necessarily have the experience required or continue to develop n their role, tend not to lead by example.

Corporate Banking Control Partner (Current Employee) –  Reading, Berkshire31 July 2018
A good place to work, embracing the flexible working ethic, good progression and benefits package.
Roles are challenging, but a lot has been centralised and it has left less in the control of the team in client roles.

Fed up
Agent (Current Employee) –  Coventry, West Midlands30 July 2018
Soul draining corporate behemoth that talks a good game but cant get the basics right. Very top down.

The opportunities for advancement require not so much knowledge or experience, but preferential treatment.

Training and development is poor.

Good employee benefits.
