    ProsStrong commitment to develop employees potentiality within a meritocracy structure that demands excellence initiative and courage. Value of diversity is one of its strongest business values

    very good.

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsSalaries are good, Office Culture one of the better ones, good flexibility of work including no in and out times etc.

    ConsVery aggressive organization, work is not as diversified as consultancies, low on travelling - so not good for people who look for that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould be a more meritocratic organization - neutral teams should be set up to gauge excellence at all levels so that rewards are less based on opinions and perceptions of a few people alone.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Global Bank - Citi is global banking standard.

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsGreat Team culture and respect peers. Salary is reasonable but do not expect the best in the market. if you really want to learn banking especially corporate banking then Citi will bring you up to the next level.

    ConsSometimes illogical and inefficient decision making structure. Do not expect the best in market salary they only give you far below what you have in mind.
    Need to prepare your self to contribute some of your private time for traveling. The major APAC region centre is in Singapore. Man! you will need to travel really often.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive and develop more benefit for your staff. Also develop program to encourage and support personal development.
