    Pros

    Hands on experience from the first week. Additional training in presentation skills and leadership as well as workplace ethics Volunteering Day Diversity Interns get to plan to department's sports day (anything goes) Great food in the canteen Everyone is so helpful and caring, even senior management take time out to speak to you. It helps foster an amazing work environment

    Cons

    No initially training was provided at start, so work can be a bit daunting at first but it's also exciting

    Advice to Management

    Didn't get to interact with the interns from other divisions. It would have been nice to have a Citi wide intern event

    With the right dedication, focus and attitude, it is possible to advance across business units and geographies. Increasing focus on women's leadership development programmes.
