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

    Pros

    Great work enviroment; team place; good to grow and develop ..lots of opportunities to work with some really smart and motivated people

    Cons

    No real cons...payouts can be lower than some of the other banks and definitely lower than hedge funds or private equity shops...not as flexible of a work culture as some hedge funds

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Citi as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    All of my superiors were easy to work with, smart and willing to help me improve. I learned a lot from my time at Citi PB, because I was willing to put my head down and work hard. But to be honest, it wasn't that laborious because my co-workers were all so helpful.

    Cons

    IT was terrible throughout my time working there. I constantly had issues with computers, getting access, etc. My first two weeks were difficult because of how little I could get done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and create some pride within the organization. Lots of people are thinking about their next move.

    great benefits with a leading global financial service

    I worked at Citi

    Pros

    I was very fortunate to have worked for Citi. For almost 8 years, I had learned and grown my career and improved financial service skills, and mortgage servicing experience.

    Cons

    In a big company, all training modules are web-based and are quite overwhelming. Such training formats are challenges and you don't have a luxury of classroom settings where you can interact and ask questions with trainers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think I'm qualified or have credential to offer such advice. However, I think Citi has more means and resources to better service the needs and wants of the customers. Equally, Citigroup is a great company with lots benefits to work for.

    I have been working at Citi full-time

    Pros

    Flexible Work Schedules. Very supportive and understanding local management. Opportunity to work from home (with demonstrated experience/proficiency) a day or two a week, or during bad weather when roads are dangerous. Great benefits, comparative to other companies I've worked for in the past.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average. Annual raises, if any, are around 2-3%. Employer requires 40 hours minimum of training each year; even if not job relevant (this may be a local expectation). Job-relevant training can be very limited, and is often "learn it as you do it". Constantly going through cycles of downsizing and/or hiring freezes. Constantly restructuring the HR tree. Great opportunity for a first promotion; however difficult to be promoted into a first-tier management position; and even more difficult to be promoted into higher management positions: think "glass ceiling".
