    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Location is close to house

    Cons

    Company is constantly contracting. People are spending some portion of their time wondering when they will get the ax. Huge disparity in bonus structure from one area to another and even if you move, it isn't adjusted. You have to leave and come back to get back to the right spot.

    Advice to Management

    Look at people who are getting laid off holistically across the whole company and give good people the opportunity to land jobs in other orgs.

    I worked at Citi (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing Pay, worked with some of the smartest people i've ever met in any industry.

    Cons

    No job security. If you get paid other people get less, so its a dog eat dog mentality. Work life balance is not a priority. Its just like what Ricky Bobby said, "If you're not first, you're last.

    Advice to Management

    Management wouldn't read this. Well the management that matters anyway

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you like fast paced work, this is the place to be. The *vastness* of the network (infrastructure) allows you to experience things that you will not experience elsewhere. Also, the work life balance is EXCELLENT.

    Cons

    The sheer amount of emails you get everyday can, and is, very daunting. You really have to be disciplined to stay on top of it. Also, sometimes, people use the "process" to slow down projects. As they say: "You can't fire someone for following the process" But it can be tough to get initiatives through.

    Advice to Management

    Senior managers need to balance the need to have process with lightening the burden that it creates for the employees.

    Pros

    Very nice work place, friendly managers.

    Cons

    not enough full time positions

    Advice to Management

    there should be more full time positions available and more staff members

    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Favourable work hours, real opportunities to be promoted to Private Banker for the most successful banker associates.

    Cons

    Wide dispersion of salaries for associate bankers performing the same tasks. From what I could tell, the base salaries for associate bankers ranged from 75k to 115k. Lateral hires were always paid more than associate bankers who ha worked at the company prior as analyst or some other lower position. .

    Advice to Management

    Management should create a compensation structure that is transparent and based on role, title, years of experience, performance and other measurable qualities. It should be secret. The lack of transparency lead to resentment in the organisation.
