    Culture that allows self-motivated to thrive. Positive, not cut-throat.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPerform well and you will be recognized and encouraged. Learn how to weave your way through the systems and the knowledge will become invaluable as you grow. Pay scale on the high side in comparison to other retail banks BUT you will work very hard for the extra $$ - staffing is very lean within the branch network and you will be expected to do more than you would with the same title in another bank. Client facing staff is knowledgeable and cares deeply about clients.

    ConsCertain area directors and branch managers create negative microcosms within a larger corporate structure that is more positive. Fiefdoms exist where leadership is reactionary and negative and not even all that competent. However, it is possible to navigate the tricky waters and succeed despite this. Move to a different branch or line of business and you can find excellent leadership and be valued. Help line is not consistently helpful, can take a very long time to resolve issues, especially IT.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline systems to talk to one another. Make it more simple to accommodate customer needs and requests without inputing data in multiple systems/data bases; such as: promotions, programs, applications and requests from customers with cross business relationships. (If cards has the client's info, share it with retail, if a private bank or global executive client has a simple account opening request, make it possible to accommodate, allow online access for a client's multiple debit cards, this list could go on and on...)

    Securities trade settlement

    Security Processing Representative (Current Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    Pros3 recruiters called me from Citi, 2 for AML position and 3rd was for trade settlement. - I ended up with Latin America trade settlement. Benefits are great. The tuition reimbursement is great and there are the financial courses that the company offers for free. You can move around to other locations where the company is found.

    ConsPay is a bit low for the industry. It can be hard to move up the ladder.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring back the bonus structure or the annual pay increase based on merit.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pretty Good Place To Work

    Product Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGlobal organization with plenty of opportunities. Decent work-life balance and very flexible with regard to working remotely when needed.

    ConsStill a bit top heavy when it comes to senior management. Very bureaucratic, but things are starting to improve. Need a little more organization focus - trying to do too much with too little.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen filling top level positions internally, don't reorganize to sooth the egos of those who didn't get the job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
