Analyst (Former Employee) – Singapore – May 24, 2018
My role at the firm was operational with focus on supporting the traders on their daily trades and ensuring all the trades are reconciled and all the requests between operations and technology are sorted
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) – Singapore – March 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.
Scrum Master / BA (Current Employee) – Marina Bay – January 23, 2018
Barclays is a very agile and productive environment to work in. Internal processes are optimum level, DevOps is advanced so technology is moving fast and that's why delivery/time to market is fast. Work culture is excellent!
Decent work culture, but very few growth opportunities
Finance Analyst (Former Employee) – Singapore – December 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.
AVP Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Marina Bay – August 31, 2017
Barclays is an ideal place to work in as there is work life balance, diversity and inclusion and employees are heard and empowered to make decisions. The company is also socially oriented as it contributes to various charity organisations.
APPLICATION SUPPORT (Former Employee) – Singapore – July 18, 2017
On a typical day at work a lot of calls, emails and chats from users. Learned to be patient with the users and understand their needs. Management and work culture are fine. Hardest part of the job when systems are down and you have to chase corresponding team to resolve the issues. Most enjoyable part of the jobs are my colleagues.
