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

    Pros

    Started as a phone rep and without college advanced to mid level management with a solid salary.

    Cons

    Competitive and demanding. Low end benefits for tuition and profit sharing. The company is currently volitile and under alot of regulatory pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on consolidating technology. Let digital engagement naturally adopt and focus on reconciling that adoption into opex retroactively.

    Citi's value lies in its diverse global footprint that provide opportunities across the globe.

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company will make investments in technology and processes. Truly global company with opportunities in many different lines of business. Good to employees in good times.

    Cons

    Good to a handful of inner circle employees in challenging times. The company tends to focus on the wrong areas for cost cutting. Large degree of politics (compared to other same sized financial services firms).

    Advice to Management

    Make more investment into people. Recognize the employees in the line who truly add value to the firm (not just their senior managers).

    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. Casual work environment. Mentor programs offered. Good employee recognition programs. Management is open to ideas to improve relationships with our bank customers and most delartments try to intetact well with each other and act as allies rather than advisaries

    Cons

    Seems to be little promotion from within. Most moves to other departments do not involve pay increases but are lateral moves even if greater responsibilties and skills required. Salaries not in line with actual responsibiltes and work done by some departments and associates.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of problems created by outsourcing. Do not believe the banks citigold clients should be passed off to outside vendors who do not seem to care about the relationship Citi is trying to build with their customers. No sense of urgency and seems to be sense of apathy toward customer service ftom dome of these offsite vendors.
