I have joined Barclays last month as AVP Finance. The work seems fine but i dont like the manager who is always trying to keep everyone under her control. Moreover i feel our opinions are not considered and she is very impatient to listen. I m thinking to quit but i would like to hear your suggestions as to whatelse i can do? Do you think barclays would consider for any other role or should i completely move out.

Joined few months back as a BA4 Developer. My situation is exactly opposite of yours. The manager and team are very good but the work is not very exciting. I used to be from core development and now doing system engineering. Discussed this with many friends and seniors about what can be done and one common thing everyone said : Moving out of here in such a short time would only cause further damage in subsequent interviews because of its big brand name.
Toxic managers are totally unbearable.Been there, faced that. But would suggest you have a one on one session and be clear of expectations and further pathways in a formal manner. Barclays policies are quite friendly and a lot of internal projects are available in every domain. You would have the option to change project after 12 months.But again, there's always an option to move out if things don't get better with time. Cheers 😃 .

I had 2 full length connects with her till now and both of them were terrible awful. She is trying to get under her grip right from the start and very impatient to listen. I have raised to her that i m coming from different industry and i m fully confident that i would be able to sustain and do work but she doesnt even listen and even blames me if some IT tickets are not approved or if my laptop is slow. Not even sure how barclays has this kind of people leader. My teammates complain about her to me in offline but the moment they are in call with her they doens't even raise their opinions

I would suggest

1. First talk with your colleagues indirectly how is the boss is and her behaviour with below

Case 1 : When other teams blame your team how your boss reacts ?? Is she protective about the team or lashes the team in front of all

Case 2 : How is her behavior during presentation with senior ?? Do she takes all credit or equally appraises the team

Case 3 : How is she before /during/ after appraisal ?? Is she someone who over promises team but during appraisal she steps back

2. What is the normal behavior of the boss asks your colleagues ?? Is she too bossy or patience one

3.Discuss with your colleagues about your recent bad engagement with boss ?? Is it a rare thing to hear about her or it happens frequently

4. If the above answers seems negative then either switch or change the team

Based on discussions with colleagues, they have this manager behaviour issue from long time and i dont think they atleast 1% interest to state to the management about this issue.

Toxic Environment will drain you. Better have a skip level discussion. Also share your thoughts with HRBP in your organization. mention explicitly that working with her is motivating you to move out from the organisation. HR will have a discussion with manager and will try to place you somewhere else in the organisation.

I have recruiters from mid-level firms reaching out to me pretty regularly for tax manager roles, but I honestly don’t feel like I am ready to be a manager. I don’t want to be in a situation where I am unable to deliver. So my question is what does it take to be a tax manager at a mid-level firm? What experience and temperament do you need? Is it normal to not feel ready? I’ve worked 2.5 yr at a regional firm, made it to senior, now been in industry for almost 2.5 yr as a tax analyst.
