    I worked at Citi

    Pros

    Very good environment to work in. very open to different roles as an intern! I did everything from technical to project management.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt there was a lack of resources available - due to the fact that people kept changing teams or they moved to a different site since our site was shut down. But hey everything is a learning experience. Fun to learn.

    I worked at Citi as an intern

    Pros

    Very professional people working around you everyday, and you could learn a lot from them. They are also very helpful and smart, everyday is challenging but you felt you improved a lot at the end of the internship.

    Cons

    Bad work-life balance, but you could not expect such benefit from investment banking. the working hour would be long most of the days, and there was little space for leisure.
