ConsVery number and Quota driven
Intense background check not really a con but if you have something they will find it

Best part of working at Citi - the people.

Human Resources Data Analyst (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Citi full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThroughout my time at Citi, I've worked with very talented and genuinely nice people. There are plenty of opportunities for employees to develop their careers. The salaries are competitive and the benefits are great.

ConsThere are days where you will have to put in long hours. In HR, there isn't really a training program, you pretty much learn on the fly and have to trust that the person walking you through the process knows what s/he is talking about. Because it's such a large organization, sometimes it's difficult to navigate through it and there can be a lot of bureaucracy involved.

An enjoyable learning opportunity

Wealth Management Analyst (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

I worked at Citi as a contractor for less than a year

ProsThe pay is really good and the training is excellent. Employee benefits also seem to outdo the industry as a whole.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider an initiative to allow for employees to weigh on company issues.
