Lot Of Hard Work no Play
AVP & SM-Direct Sales (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiMarch 17, 2019
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
