    I worked at Barclays

    Pros

    People are helpful and there is a good knowledge base to explore more about the work.

    Cons

    Still does a bit of manual work which can be solved by employing more people who could do automation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great place to work but can become a better place if employees were given more options and projects rather than having similar project types
