    Pros

    Fairly good opportunities to evolve, large organization with a lot of opportunities to work abroad. This is a huge company that you can learn a lot in different parts of banking

    Cons

    Sometimes you may get lost in the crowds. It is not easy to get to director and above as you need to stand out of the crowds and s also develop the necessary network.

    Pros

    Exposure to some of the largest transactions around the world with all the household company names you are used to hearing. Large company with plenty of professional options.

    Cons

    Large environment that creates an unnecessary amount of bureaucracy. Not the best paid employees and sometimes not the best talent in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of the large network and make sure you look out for your group and employees. The best bosses are the ones who make sure their employees get promoted and get plenty of exposure in the large web of Citi.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Competitive Salary, Nice commute if you live in west suburbs of Chicago.

    Cons

    Indians hire only Indians. Chinese hire only Chinese. Good luck to white males unless you know someone.

    Advice to Management

    Excellent leaders in the company on both ends. The middle is where the company stagnates.

    Pros

    Mobility, career growth, nice people, diverse client base, solid training.

    Cons

    Constant change in strategy over the years, lack of integration & innovation, HR strategy failing - will pay new hires salaries 20-30% above existing long term high performing employees who haven't had raises in 5 years. Huge attrition in 2015 including HR staff. Pay high performing long team internals first! Businesses running around with their own strategies which are constantly changing.

    Advice to Management

    True global offering for all clients, Pay internals, more visibility from Corbat - how about ongoing company calls to stress strategy and initiatives?, fire bottom 2-3% per year - too many underperforming long term employees working here making good money.

    Pros

    Good benefits, smart people, passionate about their work

    Cons

    It's a bank. It's not always the people who deserve a promotion who get one. You usually have to be on your way out for them to try to get you to stay.

    Pros

    Good culture, depending on group. They have a lot of career growth opportunities, and strongly encourage internal mobility.

    Cons

    Things take a while to materialize, and salary isn't as great as competitors, by level.

    Advice to Management

    If the pay isn't suffice, perhaps work/ life balance is a good area of development, to help retain employees.

    Pros

    Global corporation with lots of opportunity for movement and various career experience. Internal mobility is encouraged. Always very good people to work with.

    Cons

    Work Life balance in some positions is difficult. Compensation/Bonus structure has worsened over the years but expectations for going above and beyond have only gotten higher. Being rewarded for the work you do is a challenge in the appraisal/performance structure.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to reward employees for hard work even if not monetary.

    Pros

    Great learning experience. Team work, excellent! Share an learn with peers from all over the globe. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is not bat, but somewhat below avg. A contractor doing what you do, most likely ears about 10% more than you.

    Advice to Management

    If you said you will focuse in the company core values (which are great) do it! Don just shout them at motivational speeches.
