    I have been working at Citi full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good raises and decent pay helps. Just make sure you get what you want when you come in and before you commit.

    Cons

    Office culture is brutal. The culture is filled with politics, competitions and fighting. Things take forever to get done. Also ,the culture is work harder to compensate. The hiring practices are not standardized across LOBs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize hiring processes. HR should not take months to hire people. Also, there is a disconnect between what your manager can do for you and what they promise you.
