    I worked at Barclays

    Pros

    Hard working and good people. Occasionally felt bored and a little unnecssary, as the promote the superstars, and not everyone else

    Cons

    domination, and how are you supposed to advance from a young stage if you are not guided by the management at all?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work harder to integrate your team, otherwise it's a bit useless as new people are somewhat pariahed, which is never good
