    I worked at Citi part-time

    Pros

    Management and senior analysts very invested in their interns personal growth. Opportunity to move around the bank both geographically and with divisions. Competitive pay

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and difficult to navigate. Too many meetings that were not purposeful. Unfortunately, its not always about what you know, or what you deliver.

    Pros

    There is an effort towards diversity in the bank. Citi has business almost everywhere so there are opportunities for international assignment and experiences. Also possibility to change from one role to another with the right amount of networking.

    Cons

    People who focus on a career path have less opportunities for growth. Period of stress when certain deliverables are due.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the deteriorating image. Add resources.
