    Pros

    All levels of any information technologies. In depth professional knowledge and hands on experience with all mainframe systems and other platforms as well. In depth management experience as well as I have managed teams of up to 1500 individuals and budgets of at least $10 million dollars and all projects and deliverables have been met on time without any lapses or extensions needed at all.

    Cons

    None I am aware of at the moment or can recall from the past. Everyone has a con, however sometimes another professional colleague may see it and you may not see it yourself in order for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    No need to provide and advice to management of this outstanding global banking and investment corporation at all. Professional to the letter.

    Pros

    . Amazing atmosphere
    . Helpful colleagues
    . Upper management is always willing to assist.

    Cons

    . Compensation was low.
    . Hours were inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    Have employees come in at a specific time daily. A 9:30-10:15 start throws off those who came in earlier.

    Pros

    It has been a pleasure working at Citi. I've worked at other large banks and found the corporate culture at Citi to be more welcoming, collaborative and supportive. I'd definitely recommend working for this firm. Of course, variances may occur depending on which department you work for, but overall, I'm pleased.

    Cons

    Recent reorganization and cost cutting efforts (which are experienced across the banking industry) have reduced staff and changed many functions. Of course, only time will tell if the changes boost the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    My direct manager is the best manager that I've ever reported to in the course of my career on Wall Street, so I am grateful. For Senior Management, my advice would be to remember that at the end of the day, the people who work for you are your greatest resource. Support, encouragement and humility go a long way.

    Pros

    Ability to broaden your horizons and grow with the company, if you are able to

    Cons

    With the CEO recently branded as a "Wall Street Penny Pincher", personnel good or bad or being let go on a regular basis. Thus job security is out the window.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting major costs for the company is a good stride in the right direction, from offloading international failing businesses to cutting costs at home, very good personnel have left due to the bean counters, and their should be someway to be able to keep the right people in the right places.
