    I have been working at Citi 10 years in various IT engineering roles.

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

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

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

    I had a great experience working with Citi for 14 years. Opportunities for mentoring and advancement are available.

    Assistant Vice President (Former Employee)
    Irving, TX

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

    ConsToo 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 Technology is out of date and there are no real plans to get state of the art technology because of costs.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.
