    Culture differs greatly depending on the location in which your role operates. Expect a fast-changing environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGlobal bank offers transfer opportunities to many parts of the world. Office culture is generally friendly, however certain departments can be political depending on the unit head.

    ConsPromotion opportunities are hard to come by.

    Great Company

    Systems Analyst (Former Employee)
    San Antonio, TX

    ProsThe interview process was not long, asked many technical questions to make sure I was able to perform the required duties. Decent salary and opportunity to advance, great management and coworkers. Has a large cafeteria on site as well as a gym.

    ConsI cannot offer any cons for Citi, I was hired for the position and really enjoyed the experience working there

    Pretty Good Place To Work

    Product Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGlobal organization with plenty of opportunities. Decent work-life balance and very flexible with regard to working remotely when needed.

    ConsStill a bit top heavy when it comes to senior management. Very bureaucratic, but things are starting to improve. Need a little more organization focus - trying to do too much with too little.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen filling top level positions internally, don't reorganize to sooth the egos of those who didn't get the job.

    Fair company...mediocre internal politics

    ProsSolid company to work for. Good to employees.

    ConsCompensation average and not always comensurate with experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou get what you pay for. Less emphasis on academics and more on real life experience when hiring.

    ProsPros are excellent benefits that started from day one. They provide tuition reimbursements and the health insurance plans provide great flexibility and pricing. Great time off and job demands are within reason for most entry level positions.

    ConsLocation in Greensboro had limited opportunities to advance. It was rare to see an associate promoted to manager and it seem that the business was more prone to hire senior management from outside than from within.

    Securities trade settlement

    Security Processing Representative (Current Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    Pros3 recruiters called me from Citi, 2 for AML position and 3rd was for trade settlement. - I ended up with Latin America trade settlement. Benefits are great. The tuition reimbursement is great and there are the financial courses that the company offers for free. You can move around to other locations where the company is found.

    ConsPay is a bit low for the industry. It can be hard to move up the ladder.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring back the bonus structure or the annual pay increase based on merit.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Recommended

    Director (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsOpportunity to work with very talented and committed people.
    Opportunities for significant career growth for ambitious and self-motivated people with the prospect of taking on large responsibilities early on in your career.
    Opportunity to travel and great freedom to move internally into new roles and geographically to work from other offices.
    Reasonable investments in training people.

    ConsLike many large financial institutions, Citi can be somewhat bureaucratic and, at many times, personal relationships and connections triumph over formal processes in getting things done. As you progress in seniority your day can very quickly become a series of reoccurring and frustrating back-to-back meetings.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
