The heads of some desks of Barclays Capital have told their workers not to bother with the usual dress code. It’s a business casual day, thanks to the snow storm.

Yesterday the firm told employees to “make every effort” to get in to the office. Several employees grumbled about this “business as usual” policy.

“Getting in? Fine. How the **** are we supposed to get home?” one employee said.
