    Pros

    Well-known brand. Great global platform. Market-competitive benefits. Coworkers from diverse background. A true world-bank that you interact with people from different regional offices.

    Cons

    Work-life balance might be a challenge, however, this is an issue for all the financial institutions. The firm as a whole is trying to change but there still are old-schooled people.

    Pros

    Global opportunities and very wide range of groups to join
    Very good managers if you find the right group
    big name will help you leverage your skills once you move on

    Cons

    Organization is too big to get effective work done and learn real skills
    Some groups can be very fluffy and your effectively dropped into a middle manager role where you are not impacting revenue and simply supporting other.

    Pros

    Citi has been around forever, so there is a sense of security working there.
    Great benefits that start up front

    Cons

    Its a call center and you never forget that for a moment. There is a very drone like feeling you get working there.
    Upper management is disconnected from regular employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make pay more competetive

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

    Pros

    The pay was decent until "redundancy" hit me. Then I was fired due to "business reasons". Lost everything. Hey, take a chance if you want to - why not... You just might make it if you kiss up to the right people...

    Cons

    When you get let go, you get "one phone call".... made just to you with HR on the line to explain what comes next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop out-sourcing the jobs. After 13 years my co-worker in Brazil now does my job. Thanks Citi. My family thanks you too..

    Pros

    company has global reach, opportunities abound. Clients attracted to major global status of citi, cross product possibilities.

    Cons

    threatening environment, for both managers and personnel alike.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat people with respect. Consider the contributions of existing staff and not be so eager to slash and replace current team members.

    Pros

    Fast pace environment. Good Pay. Company name has great value on resume. So it pays to work there for few years and move on.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Yearly lay-offs irrespective of how the company is doing. Management wants you to step over your peers, if needed, to move forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to value employees more.
