Nice people, decent pay

I have been working at Barclays Capital

Pros

Decent salary, fairly relaxed and friendly working culture. People were nice, the team I was in had some really experienced people, so you could learn a lot.

Cons

The operations were not running very well... so you ended up chasing them up most of your time. Pretty tiring after a while.

    I worked at Barclays Capital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice work-life balance. Mid-level managers seem to be genuinely concerned with junior staff. Good cafeteria and in general the carpets are clean and the staff is friendly.

    Cons

    There is less than ideal deal flow at the junior level so you may have trouble switching to a buy side role if that's something that interests you.
