    Pretty Good Place To Work

    Product Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGlobal organization with plenty of opportunities. Decent work-life balance and very flexible with regard to working remotely when needed.

    ConsStill a bit top heavy when it comes to senior management. Very bureaucratic, but things are starting to improve. Need a little more organization focus - trying to do too much with too little.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen filling top level positions internally, don't reorganize to sooth the egos of those who didn't get the job.

    Recommended

    Director (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsOpportunity to work with very talented and committed people.
    Opportunities for significant career growth for ambitious and self-motivated people with the prospect of taking on large responsibilities early on in your career.
    Opportunity to travel and great freedom to move internally into new roles and geographically to work from other offices.
    Reasonable investments in training people.

    ConsLike many large financial institutions, Citi can be somewhat bureaucratic and, at many times, personal relationships and connections triumph over formal processes in getting things done. As you progress in seniority your day can very quickly become a series of reoccurring and frustrating back-to-back meetings.

    I have met some really nice people working at Citi and its the people that have made my experience very pleasant.

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsCiti is a good place to work as they have great people, flexible work schedules (as long as your manager agrees) and they have an intensive effort on volunteering.

    ConsCiti is a huge organization with several businesses and it is hard to know who to reach out to for one thing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf the company advertises flexible work schedules, the managers working for the company should support it.

    Great company

    Credit Risk Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsWork-life balance, office culture. Good benefits. Overall company results have been improving given the economy. Training provided is adequate and management encourages employees to participate.

    ConsLeadership struggles. Compensation is not great. Behind on technology. Management provides conflicting messages on the strategy at times. Higher management message is not disseminated appropriately across all levels of the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSalary/Comp not up to par with industry

    The Citi Way

    Operations Associate (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIf you like working in a very structured environment in the finance field, then Citi is for you. Until the outsourcing of my position, I worked for this company for more than half a century. They have positions in everything from money management, administrative, compliance, charity and community work. They provide flex time and telecommuting in certain departments which works well for those that qualify.

    ConsAs with many companies this large, you can get lost in the shuffle if you don't fight for what you've earned. Depending on the department, there may be a lot of office politics and you are stuck with who you know and not what you know or give value to. Flex time or telecommuting is offered in the company but mainly for higher up positions instead of all levels.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn all fairness, management should give all levels the opportunity to enjoy some of the perts given to higher levels. There should be a scale that provides the same flex time, telecommuting and advancement where there is more fairness among all.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
