Work experience
I had a great experience working with a small back office processing team, as we were committed to complete our daily task on the same day without carrying forward.

Needs more job functions
Good working environment, but needs more responsibilities. My job role is very manageable that I prefer to have more responsibilities to be able to grow more on this field.

Lot Of Hard Work no Play
Barclays PLC Dubai was a very high performance cultured organisation.
Whilst there is nothing wrong in this, there was hardly any touch on human aspect. I was surprised to experience such apathy from Senior Management.


I left the organisation in 9 months and on a lower pay as I didnt want to continue with them.

Pretty bad experience.
Pros
Multinational Name
Cons
Long working hours with no apathy for human. Treated like machines

Have had the experience of working with Barclays, the name attracts you being a UK based company but the work environment was not well established .

A typical day would include informing customers about our products and features and maintaining a track record of all the target customers
Pros
fitness day
Cons
no fixed hours
