Just look at all the layoffs and people quitting...I need work on my exit


Ex-BARC here, grass is actually greener lads


Barclays sucks. Super political and semi-racist as you move further up. Stay away prospective applicants!!!


Haha you expect something different


There's a reason I have no intention of ever working at Barckays.


Yea no way. Looking at baml and Jpm since GS seems like a workaholic hellhole


Same here. Some good, but too many terrible humans.


Yea and I’m sure every group is different


It’s super political in all big firms. Barclays is no different in that respect as far as I️ can see.


Barclays is a rough culture. Layoffs are especially hard on morale.

Great. Hh reached out to me RE Barclays but def not doing now

No you should at least try to speak with the people you would work with. We’re just a few people here. Groups can obviously vary a ton

Healthcare insights @ Barclays?

I was interviewing for McKinsey in the defense and security industry (clearance needed) and thought I did absolutely great on the first business case. The second, however, was with a principal that had very different political views from my own (I’d done some research on her LinkedIn). The business case felt different from any others that I had studied and felt like an attempt to get political without directly doing so. I was quickly rejected following the 2nd interview. Should I try reapplying?
