    Good leaders and mentors. Plenty of career path options. Decent pay. Good performance management structure.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Lots of career-oriented, smart people to work with. Terrific benefits package.

    Cons

    Compensation was far below industry standards and what my peers were making. Promoted twice with any increase in salary. Career mobility options are more limited than they should be for a company of this size, due in part to frequent purges of talent and downsizing. Moving between business areas is almost impossible due to "good ol boy" mentality. Absurdly slow to embrace new technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At some point, you have to realize that you've cleared out your "dead wood" and that you're now managing out and/or laying off people who are talented and have a lot to offer the company. Rather than assume someone should be let go because they've been there forever, try to see if they can work with new technology or new people.

    Pros

    The opportunities are vast and wide at Citi. On a daily basis, one has the privilege of working with people sitting right next to them, and around the globe. In my experience, I have gotten the opportunity to help set up new call centers, call recording technologies, and manage software development projects for one of Citi's largest strategic programs.

    Cons

    It is difficult at times to see how the scope of your individual assignment plays out in the larger picture of what Citi is doing as a whole.

    Pros

    There is an excellent opportunity for advancement. Their training is very thorough, although some people tend to get left behind. In my opinion, most of those who do get left behind were not good fits for the job in the first place. Those that do make it through training, and the first 90 days of employment tend to be very successful. If you can tough it out in an entry level position you can work your way through the ranks.

    Cons

    As stated previously it can be a grind to get a chance at promotion. But like most jobs that's just the way it goes. Senior management makes attempts to give employee recognition, but a lot of the time it as seen as cheesy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find better ways to recognize top achievers.

    Pros

    The benefits package has been very very good throughout the years, although it has also gotten more and more expensive. It pays well but expects 150% for that payment. Do not start there thinking it will be a breeze, it is not. No one has been treated well, and they are all more than willing to share the misery. But like I said it pays better than most places in this town.

    Cons

    Long hours, expectations from management that are unclear, senior management seems unclear on anything. Rewards are few, and are given to the people who promote themselves the most, or the people whos management takes the time to recognize them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay yourselves less.

    Pros

    Large organization with diverse businesses...room to grow

    Cons

    Current management is myopic and has driven the company to almost ruin. this used to be the best of the best. Most ot the best managers and creative thinkers have left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people to dream and bring fresh approaches to the table. Everything now is head down and execute.
