    I worked at Citi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Worked exclusively from home for last 2 years of employment.

    Cons

    Little chance to move up in my department. No raises for 2 years. Small bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doesn't much matter since this division is being sold. Maybe the next owner will turn a profit and provide bonuses or increases to its employees.

    Pros

    Dynamic and fast paced work environment. Excellent mobility opportunities. Rewards hard work with career advancement. Casual work culture. Easily accessible location.

    Cons

    Disorganized long term planning. Cost cutting environment. Weak technology infrastructure and underinvestment in facilities. Inability to compete with peers in terms of financial compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drastic investments are needed in tech infrastructure, facilities and people retention are needed. Training and development can also be improved to help develop talent internally.

    I have been working at Citi full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good raises and decent pay helps. Just make sure you get what you want when you come in and before you commit.

    Cons

    Office culture is brutal. The culture is filled with politics, competitions and fighting. Things take forever to get done. Also ,the culture is work harder to compensate. The hiring practices are not standardized across LOBs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize hiring processes. HR should not take months to hire people. Also, there is a disconnect between what your manager can do for you and what they promise you.
