    I have been working at Citi (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I found the staff very friendly and helpful, they took their time to train me and any queries I had they were more than happy to sit down and explain what I needed to know

    Cons

    Long hours, you only get paid by contract but are expected to work at least an hour extra a day which you do not get paid for.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that some jobs at Citi are being promoted in a way in which is misleading, in terms of what it is you will actually be doing, I was disappointed as I came to think of it as more of a call centre than anything.


  2. Long hours. Very political work environment.

    I worked at Citi full-time

    Pros

    Access to the latest in technology. Great cutting edge projects to work on . Theoretically career mobility within organisation is encouraged.

    Cons

    Long hours seem to be the rule ather than the exception in this organization . Especially at senior levels. Sending and responding to emails at 6:00 AM is a common practice. Weekend work is also expected from time to time. This can a very political environment to work in. Career advancement benefits etc can be dependent on who you know rather than what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Focus on fostering better work environment and better work life balance. Ensure that there is a culture if meritocracy.
