Working 12 hours a day is not very pleasant. The only good thing is I had a good manager in the 2nd and 3rd role.

too many restructuring
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  SingaporeMarch 4, 2018
Throughout my 5 years of career at Barclays, I was given empty promises every year.
There were so many restructurings and redundancies especially towards the second half of my time there.
In the end we were training counterparts in India to offshore the jobs to and people were laid off or taking paycuts while doing more work.
Pros
nice view from office
Cons
bad longterm planning, toxic politics

Good Staff Benefits
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Marina BayFebruary 22, 2018
Nice bank to work at, was not too stingy about staff benefits and perks. The company advocates work life balance; but many a times this was not the case.

Still a good place to work; to start or end a career!
Pros
Many staff benefits and welfare initiatives
Cons
Not hiring as much, as before

Decent work culture, but very few growth opportunities
Finance Analyst (Former Employee) –  SingaporeDecember 17, 2017
On a day to day basis, Barclays is a good place to work. However, Barclays is not good from a compensation and career advancement basis. In the last few years, Barclays has been trying to reduce headcount and hence there has been a continuous hiring freeze. This results in very few opportunities to get promoted, move internally to other roles or to other locations.

Typical Banking environment
EXECUTIVE (Former Employee) –  SingaporeDecember 5, 2017
Very stressful. Typical banking environment. No work life balance.

Job security highly depends on global financial stability, which can be very volatile at times.
