Good company to work with.

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Citibank full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCompany takes care of employees well with good benefits and compensation. People having long term plan can stick with company. Lots of projects keeps you busy with career and interesting working environment and flexible colleagues at much needed times.

ConsManagers don't have technical knowledge. Be prepared to spend hrs to explain them about the issues, resolutions and precautions. Management sometimes does not have good workflow. Also, be prepared to work round the clock.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompany is great, but management can improve in handling business requirements.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Citibank full-time for more than 3 years

Proscant think of any honestly. I guess the people that i worked with were the best part of my time with this company.

Consconstant micromanagement, no room for growth, unattainable goals. They were slowly picking us off one by one. Stay away from Citi. They are not the bank of the future. just a name of the past

Advice to Senior Managementnone

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Company to work for in the past

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Citibank full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood salary and benefits including time off!
Opportunity for personal growth and advancement!
Most employees are professional, conscientious, hard working and results oriented when properly trained and coached by their managers.

ConsIn the past the company was one of being known for taking care of their employees and customers all while growing their business and bottom line.

Over the past several years they changed many of their senior management team who are all trying to reinvent the wheel. Many layoffs causing remaining staff to be overworked with unrealistic goals.

The staff does not tell management their feelings for fear of being managed out.
High staff turnover in the branches causing customer dissatisfaction.

Advice to Senior ManagementReminder to senior management that when your staff is happy, your customers will be happy and if managed properly your should have double digit revenue growth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Risk Manager

Senior Vice President (Current Employee)
Long Island, NC

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

ProsCiti is a large bank complex organization with many opportunities to learn about products that span various businesses throughout the globe.

ConsNot a very friendly environment. People are expected to do their work and not ask questions. Culture is very tense and people are "stressed". Managers do a good job at managing up, but are terrible are leading teams.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at your midlevel managers. If there is excessive turnover under a specific manager, there is a reason for it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
