"The firm culture at Barclays is fantastic. The people are incredible and they are dramatically taking steps to become one of the most dominant players in the field, so the deal flow is great."
"Overall, the quality of life is great! The working environment is flexible, and colleagues are very supportive and friendly. I sincerely appreciate it that my colleagues are always willing to help provide professional guidance on my work. I've learnt a lot during the internship, and my programming skills get improved. I'm satisfied with the work/life balance."
"Culture was great and communication with team members was easy, constant, and fluid. Hours were long and projects were very tedious at time, which led to some of it not being fully engaging. Overall learning curve was steep and skills were picked up quickly."
"Great culture at the workplace, everyone is very friendly and open to supporting you with any problems you have, especially managers who are very approachable and responsive. Work/life balance is great, as goals that are set are manageable and realistic, while also providing an attainable target for progress."
Getting Hired Here
"I had an unusual recruiting process but was grateful to the people who helped me along the way. I was surprised that I wasn't vetted at a deeper level during the interview process."
"My interview process was quite seamless, however, I would have appreciated more communication as I didn't hear anything for a few months."
"The interview was demanding but good as the long presentation element gave you an opportunity to display your skills. The interviewers were very nice and I even connected with one a couple of times during my internship after he reached out to me."
"The interview process was really good and informative. Sometimes delays between each stage were too long and the wait between receiving my offer and contract was too long (around 2-3 months)."
