    I worked at Citi full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, time off benefits, health benefits, 401k/company matching program

    Cons

    Too many gaps in communication due to the size of the departments/groups. Technology is out of date and there are no real plans to get state of the art technology because of costs. Also the company lacks a great deal in the training department for new hires. This is also because of costs and no good technology.

    Pros

    Telecommuting is encouraged. Flexible work schedule and work/life balance. Decent comp. Opportunity to deliver solutions at global scale is a fun challenge.

    Cons

    Coping with global bureaucracy and deeply siloed organization can be frustrating at times. Deeply entrenched legacy technology stacks and lock-in often stand in the way of achieving true IT transformation and innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Annual review and rating process perceived as unfair; give control back to the direct managers.

    Pros

    great benefits
    great work environment
    Coworkers were amazing, and great support from Management

    Cons

    If you don't like to be micro managed, this might not be the place for you. They watch when you go to the bathroom, when you go to lunch, and monitor every call and give you feedback at the end of the mont.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep rewarding your team for a job well done, showing appreciation is a wonderful way to keep up worker's moral and motivation to do their job right.
