I have been working at Barclays Capital as a contractor for more than a yearPros
People reading this can end up saying "You might be unlucky." or "It's just only you."
This company was ok before the Agile migration. At least I would not give any negative feedback if I could not give any positive.
But unfortunately, I am forced to give negative feedback.
So, here are the pros
Management want to do blame game.
My Boss is much more interested in screwing up people than helping in the project.
Instead of taking status update, my boss discuss about rumors. That is annoying because I get paid to do work not have fun in the meetings.
In the meeting my boss blames his boss and ends up firing people who was not even their mistakes.
After all this our director was taking status meeting after every release. Thank God. At least our director knows what they are doing.
These guys reduced almost like one thousand dollars (approx) per month in the salary. Really? After all this?
Money was never a issue to me... I would even worked on very low if people were at least friendly.
I have no opinion on how the CEO is. CEO might be good but all people working under him/her are not good.
You are suppose to write about Pros not Cons here!
"I know right?"Cons
Agile Team was Trash
Development Team was hostile (I would not be surprised even if they take guns and shoot me)
Ego problem with management.
No friendly people even with own Tester Team.
Project manager suddenly shouted in front of all people "Why did you not tested this?" Although I did not tested that piece someone else tested that. I got the blame for that.
I had a situation where three development people yelled at me at same time and looking to that one tester also started to blame me.
Again "It's just only me." But if it happened to me it can happen to anyone.
Finally I have to resign to that place after so much pain.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I have no advice to management.
I guess those people are grown up people and not kids. They came to that position for a reason, because of their achievement. The way I see it they want to do things intentionally.
So Thank you for having me for one year.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
