    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good offices, good teamwork, global reach, varied work. Some very talented managers and staff, it is an interesting place to work. Has a flexible approach to working.

    Cons

    Constant threat of moving to mid-cost and low-cost locations so some job insecurity. Can be somewhat overly bureaucratic

    Advice to Management

    Delegate more to middle and senior management. Look behind the metrics and don't be so metric driven. Off-shoring isn't always the best approach

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    In general good environment for high performers.

    Cons

    Sometimes in few projects managers can be a pain. But this can happen anywhere. May or may not get bonus Pay hikes are not that great after promotions etc. You get some unconvincing reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Give better pay to your current employees who are high performer without they trying to push for it. Unfortunately the way it works now is the new joiners get paid well than those who are already there.
