    Pros

    Citi is a good place to work as they have great people, flexible work schedules (as long as your manager agrees) and they have an intensive effort on volunteering.

    Cons

    Citi is a huge organization with several businesses and it is hard to know who to reach out to for one thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the company advertises flexible work schedules, the managers working for the company should support it.

    I worked at Citi full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    In the more than five, less than ten years I worked there my compensation more than doubled. Company kept us throughout the recession. Was eventually laid off with the rest of the staff, but received months of notice and a lot of support through the process. Contacts at this company actually helped me get my next job. Lots of opportunities to move around and advance, very supportive culture.

    Cons

    Nothing really jumps to mind. Life after Citi makes it apparent how good you had it, because no job will ever do more to take care of you than they will. Note, I was a very low ranked employee. When the people on the bottom can say that, you're doing something right.

    I have been working at Citi full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very thorough training, encouraged to spend time at work on learning
    Candid and straightforward HR policies, fair and no drama
    Lots of time off, 3 weeks personal, 10 holidays, plus sick-time as needed
    Plentiful movement opportunities within the company
    Professional, mature co-workers

    Cons

    Other than the high 401k contribution, benefits are lack-luster for such a large company
    Large disconnect from IT and operations, technology improvements are few and unimpressive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more "embedded" IT and MIS positions throughout departments. Reaching out to large off-site development teams for system improvements are prohibitively expensive, take too long, and lack the polish common in todays applications. There also needs to be more communication between the existing IT and MIS developers, many systems and resources are underutilized.

    I worked at Citi part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salaries are great and the clients you work with are superb. Bonuses are good and your daily life is not that affected because of work

    Cons

    It gets a little difficult to manage time but you get used to it just like anything else in life. The job is all about what you make of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to add some creative touches to training and daily job functions.
