Financial advisor (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiOctober 31, 2017
Barclays UAE have been aggresive to dominate the market, weak management/policies lead the business to difficult position. Resulting closure of retail segment and merger with local bank.
During my time with the bank, had great learning in terms of market and pressure handling.
Pros
Brand
Cons
Long hours, unrealistic approach towards business
