    I worked at Citi full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -The company culture is awesome, they hold a lot of different charity events, competitions, and pot lucks for holidays.
    -Very professional atmosphere, everyone is always smiling, bureaucracy exists but not to an extent where it starts to affect your general view of the company (just to maintain order).
    -Ability to pretty much get hired on to any of the other departments so long as you have the qualifications and you do well in the interview. They love hiring internally.

    Cons

    -Sometimes, we had to work overtime during the very busy 3-4 months out of the year in Winter, but I was mostly grateful for those OT opportunities, even though it did cause me to lose some sleep.
    -There really wasn't any cons about my experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Focus more on the individuals and conduct more consistent performance reviews, and try to go out of your comfort zones a little bit to go beyond the scope of your responsibilities to develop strong relationships with employees.

    Pros

    Citi is a vast company with many diverse and different people to meet and work with while your are employed by Citi. Working for a larger company like Citi provides security during good financial times in the industry.

    Cons

    When the financial industry starts to encounter tough times, Citi is typically the first to be impacted. Since the crisis, Citi struggled to grow revenues while trying to manage its expense base. Cost cutting and reductions-in-force are quite common during the tougher times in the industry. Citi also strategizes to be middle-of-the-road to average in terms of compensating employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Voice-of-the-Employee every year shows that employees do not believe senior management will act on the results of the VOE. Citi management should ensure that significant investments are made into employee morale, culture, compensation and development. Citi has turned into too much of a revolving door for many middle level managers and non-managing middle level employees.
