Barclays is such a great company to work and one really feel proud in saying that he/she works with Barclays. In terms of employee respect, salary, compensations, transport, job security, growth etc This company is really great.

Dislikes

The things I dislike about Barclays are too much politics, favouritism, and most importantly the think smart ideas given by the employees is the root cause which is making the company sick day by day people are giving really pathetic ideas on the name of improvement but actually those ideas are anti human. You will be asked for every single minute you were idle. In a few processes management raise finger at you like fools. They appriciate people who just play with the policy and some how manage the time tracker but ask questions to those who really work harder and manage the work but just takes a little more idle time. Most of the managers don't even understand the meaning of quality work.

Work

Work there is neither boring nor interesting most of the process has same kind of work always. Not much is there to learn but IJPs are always there to move on that depends on your dedication to crack the IJP and move to the profile you want.

Barclays is a Paymaster. Good monetary and other recognitions are given for employees. Management emphasise living by the company values both professionally and personally. Many women employees in my department are given career breaks and flexi shift options to encourage work life balance. New businesses, Robotics are given lot of importance which will help the employees to learn n enchance their knowledge to match up with tomorrow's competitive world. Soft skill trainings are given, but this option shouls be enhanced. More opportunities to learrn lot more can be explored by the company. Many free medical camps are conducted for the benefits of the employees. Company encourages helping the soceity and servicing the needed people via citizenship activities. Team year end party are commendable. They can encourage more outings. Year end gifts are given to employees.

Dislikes

Barclays use a lot of Legacy Systems, changing which will take the company to the next level. Career growth opportunities can be improved. Free Transport is given but their service is very poor. It should be improved a lot.

Work

Every day is a new experience.

The only thing to like about this organisation is the training team. They do put a lot of effort in preparing every individual for what lies ahead. The break out areas or tuck shops on floor is another thing to like but you wouldn’t get a lot of chance to spend time there.

Dislikes

The VCC process is nothing less than a syndicate where undeserving people have occupied managerial positions purely on the basis of their tenure. From 10 years to 5-6 years. There’s a lot of nepotism and unethical behaviour which makes life difficult and then comes work life balance which is absent too. Leaves are as imaginative a concept as utopia. High degree of negativity. To top it up if you raise a concern to the HR you get nothing in return, instead the issue is brushed under the rug by VP, AVP and Managers through systematic unprecedented and unproductive meetings in a room. Turns out it’s a waste of time and really if only I could emphasis more on it, drains the energy and positivity out of an individual at the entry level. I want s a top performer with 100% NPS for as long as i worked there. Not one D-Sat, not one passive.

There is no place for skilled person in BSS at all. However my tenure is not that huge but I have seen and observe BSS don't value there tenured employees and person who performs. No learning at all , some times like idiot politicians VP and AVPs of process specific support corruption and baisness openly. And also I have observed instead of advisors and TSS, Team managers are more involved in unwanted politics and belive in divide and rule policy. And you never know when they will start making there mind to chuck out if you try and tell them or escalate about wrong doings happening on floor.

Dislikes

Work culture .Management is very narrow minded and top of it you can come and see most of top level employees don't know how to speak in English properly. You spend 15 to 16 hours straight in a day. You will be hardly noticed for your good work . Appraisals are absolutely worst.

Work

Pathetic, hectic and stressed . No recognition if you are good at work and not lick bosses ass.

There is no job security for temporary people and they will expel you at anytime. Certain manager don't have a deserve to work as their level,Entire Barclays process having count based work so they always suck your hard work without hike.
Especially temp. employee should give best performance until you get permanent position in meantime if you give your best then they won't give benefit because you are temp. employee.
Only Barclays give benefits to Team Leaders and Managers
Note: Temporary position not for Team Leader and Managers

The teammates are very supportive. Job security is there. Career growth opportunities are there through IJP.

Dislikes

In Barclays Noida mostly at B5 (Manager) and above level, they do not perform any task except to allocate the work. Due to this whole burden of the works get shifted to B4 (Assistant Mgr) and below level employees which on various occasions leads to lot of pressure work.

Work

I am involved in Reporting Team ( FINREP AND RACE reporting). The work is totally different from what we have studied. It requires excel and mail writing skills. We need to populate the webforms and also to do XBRL REPORTING for tax compliance to HMRC.

This company is open to innovation and readily adopts latest technology. I love my all team leaders and team mates who was really good. In Barclay's there is no discrimination and biased in treating employees. It has good ambience and working culture.

Dislikes

Compensation is decent, but growth is slow. No more appraisal and candidates where hiring through third party. Hence no career growth for contractual employees.

Work

Generally speaking my work is slightly challenging as I have to look on my work carefully coz I'm dealing with money of our customers. It's backend banking process. Very responsive role. It's good working with Barclay's

Working with Barclays, I had a great experience. I had the opportunity to work with great people and minds, on job training, learning always helped in my BAU. The work environment is good and as you grow in your role, you build a strong rapport with your teammates and onshore colleagues which helps in getting more exposure. The management is helpful in every aspects of business and salary/appraisal is as per industry standards. Career growth is performance driven.

Dislikes

Work-Life Balance is hard to find as I worked every day for 12 hrs but sometimes flexibility is granted when needed.
