Does Barclays offer life insurance?

Pros

Good pension contributions, free life insurance, free 50% income protection for long term illness and free healthcare plan. Good choice of optional benefits including dental insurance, bicycle scheme, and share purchase schemes. Generally no blame culture, the focus is on solving problems and working together. Relaxed place to work in a beautiful campus.

Cons

Can be stressful at times with high stakes work. The focus on diversity & inclusion culture change is still taking time to filter down to all levels. The class divide can feel quite large between managers and lower level staff.

Advice to Management

The lowest paid workers and workers coming from lower socio-economic backgrounds often have very different experiences. I think it would be good if we could have some diversity and inclusion focused on class backgrounds.
