    Pros

    Global brand name, supportive culture

    Cons

    Huge organization, not as creative projects txt a smaller company might dare to have

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support young people and make Citi a company of the 21st century - dare to make the tech group very robust. Recruit the best of the best to your tech teams.

    I have been working at Citi full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Global bank with opportunities to work with very diverse teams. Office cultures vary a lot by location so very hard to generalize for the firm as a whole.

    Cons

    Not to many cons I can think of. Really depends on the office or group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Development of talent from within is best way to grow firm. Still very beaurcratic in structure (promotions based on tenured service rather than performance).

    I worked at Citi full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Management support, continued job coaching, benefits, willingness to hire people with people skills but not computer skills, and then train them where some companies, Geico for example, make you pass a computer skills test just to pass the interview.

    Cons

    Hiring you for customer service and then adding additional customer service responsibilities to help back up loan processing that's sometimes months behind.

    I worked at Citi

    Pros

    Great Job with room for advancement. I was employed for 2 years there during the worst part of the recession and found it to be a great place to work. The Benefits are really good. Vacation days, Sick Leave, etc. Good Opportunity to move to other departments, if there is a layoff.

    Cons

    None. Some people didn't like cubicles. But that wasn't a big deal for me.
