    I worked at Citi

    Pros

    Learned a lot, good work-life balance. Lots to learn and do in one firm. Great place to start a career.

    Cons

    There was too many people that didn't carry their weight. Disappointing, but that is what you get with a large firm I suppose.

    Good financials, career growth opportunities

    Constant transformation activities that cut people before transformations occurred. Made it tough to deliver consistent levels of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Finish your last transformation before starting the next...:)

    Pros

    Family friendly, they let you mange your style, for the most part; a very good company to work for.

    Cons

    Unrealistic work loads at times, may have too many deadlines to meet at once. Other businesses within the company will try to put their work off on others. "They state that your supporting them". Basically your doing their work for them.
