    I have been working at Citi full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Advancement can be quick
    - Pay is on par with equivalent companies
    - International exposure in over 100 countries
    - Benefits OK
    - Good physical environment

    Cons

    - Constant change. A lot of it is unnecessary due to management churn
    - Decision making process often very slow
    - Culture shock when moving from one division to another due to different legacy environments in acquired businesses.
    - Yearly reductions in force.
    - Tendency to hire from the outside for critical positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Better communication across the emterprise.
    - Legacy cultures (Citicorp, Smith Barney, Citigroup, etc) need to be integrated.

    I have been working at Citi as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, great manager who was not overbearing, and a supportive overseas team.

    Cons

    Boring work ( I worked on projects I wasn't really interested in), such a big company its really hard to get to know people. Food is expensive, I know they pay well, but so do other companies and they dont charge their employees to use the company gym.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I dont have much advice to give. I wouldn't work here because its just not my type of environment.

    Pros

    Time off policies are great, leadership looks like they have a vision - values in place can be enforced more

    Cons

    Salary is very less compared to other peers, there is a lot of internal politics which may be good or bad for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions and personal growth (along with compensation for junior staff) needs to be looked at to stall the drain of talent
