    Pros

    Great place to work, some of the team leads are amazing

    Cons

    Be careful with the End of the year review, it can really impact you career at Citi.
    Second chances are not part of the culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    End of the year reviews are great tool to evaluate employees but in some circumstances other factors should be taking into consideration.

    I have been working at Citi full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good health benefits - Vision coverage always gets positive comments from the various optometrist I have used.

    Cons

    As with any big company, with whom you work will dictate your experience. I'm blessed with a good boss, but some higher-ups are a bit more closed-off to suggestions and may not be as in-touch with lower level employees as they could be.
    Always too busy to take desired training for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to treat all with respect, even if they aren't at your senior level. Keep an open mind and realize not all employees will be "stars". Be more receptive to criticism. Involving impacted teams in decisions/process changes will go a long way toward making positive strides.

    Pros

    Great training programs for young talent

    Mobility is encouraged and made easier by the global platform; also a philosophy that once they recruit someone, they would like to keep you

    Impressive progression out of the financial crisis

    Cons

    Political and fragmented due to the mere size of the organization. Therefore individual experiences can vary a great deal, depending on who your most direct manager(s) are.

    Management has ambitious goals, which is great. However, execution is lacking.

    Laid back environment encourages lack of professionalism at times

    Great opportunities after leaving and good opportunities to expand to other departments. Good learning resources and exposure to a many different areas of a truly worldwide bank.

    Cons

    Big company going through a lot of change in each department, due to changes in regulations. There was a lot of miscommunication and unclear instructions on these changes. This led to a lot of confusion and slowed down work.
