    I have been working at Citi as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The 10 week summer internship program at Citi is one of a kind. The networking, leadership exposure and friendly environment makes Citi a rewarding company to work for.

    Cons

    Large company. A lot of employees with many small teams/groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction/face time with interns during the summer would of made it a better experience.

    the don't allow you to have an account to play stocks, being monitered all day long is not that confortable as i wish

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give more chances to those foreign grads, where is the so called diversity in your company? how much do you earn per year, how much does an H1B cost?!
