    I worked at Citi as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Strong 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

    Cons

    Maybe one of the cons is its market concentration. Expansion possibilities may able employees to achieve different assignments around the world

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I definitely think that Citi provides a good work-life balance.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should 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.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Sometimes 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 ManagementAdvice

    Give and develop more benefit for your staff. Also develop program to encourage and support personal development.
