What’s the culture like at Barclays? Has anyone moved there from JPMorgan? Would you recommend to do so for a significantly better pay?

Was a 14 year veteran of JP - moved to Barclays 6 years ago and don’t regret it. Get far more exposure to internal C-level execs and pay doubled up on JP

Far less blame culture at Barclays although technology is behind JP. Quicker decision making process at JP but feel Barclays overall is a more pleasant environment to work in. Depends heavily where you are coming from/going to obviously

Depends on which group - I would imagine Lehman legacy groups (nat has, oil, PB, etc) to be tougher but if Barclays probably more chill
