    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.

    I worked at Citi as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    All of my superiors were easy to work with, smart and willing to help me improve. I learned a lot from my time at Citi PB, because I was willing to put my head down and work hard. But to be honest, it wasn't that laborious because my co-workers were all so helpful.

    Cons

    IT was terrible throughout my time working there. I constantly had issues with computers, getting access, etc. My first two weeks were difficult because of how little I could get done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and create some pride within the organization. Lots of people are thinking about their next move.
