Counter Manager in London, Greater London
on 12 May 2022
Brilliant Colleagues
Loved it, made some brilliant friends. I started straight from school and was management before i was 20 but not paid enough and older employees used to not listen and mess up on purpose. Senior management thought they were the fbi and if you don’t work hard and achieve targets they will forget about you but if you want a career and move out of branch it’s a good company. We used to all go to the pub when we were cashiers at 11 for lunch and get drunk by the time we came back 😂😂 so funny. But we were all very good at the job (barring 1 or 2) and the branch ran amazingly. Brilliant work life balance. Out most evenings after work. Best social life ive ever had, i do miss it 😢

A company that cares about its staff and treats you more than just a number.
Barclays lives by its values and treats colleagues with respect. The pay is good and the benefits are fantastic. There’s also great opportunities for progression. I loved working at Barclays and only left due to my office at Millshaw being closed, or I would have worked there until my retirement.

Marketing Manager in London South East, Greater London

Pros and cons
You get to work with really good people and that's what keeps you in the job.You also work with people who are very political, manage upwards, disregard collaboration and create tension and unhappiness among their peers. Think of them as steam rollers. They still deliver and are looked after by senior managers. The business itself is full of red tape for various reasons. You will be a cog and you must be prepared for bureaucracy and not being able to implement meaningful changes beyond your immediate team processes.

Awful training
Training is non existent. You are put on the phones not even knowing how the systems work and left to it. Management don’t care and say learn as you go which is fairly impossible when you can’t work the systems in the first place! Extremely stressful.
