    Pros

    Loved the people across the board. Lots of great benefits. Flexible. Enjoyed my time there.

    Pay was below average. Citibank does not pay for performance. The way they pay people is all over the map.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for performance, Put more value into your good people. Keep up the great benefits.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for additional learning, growth. Many well-educated peers; lots of interaction of ideas. Strong senior management, for the most part.

    Cons

    large corporate structure will, at times, thwart innovation. Lead times can be somewhat lengthy. Lots of internal squabbling and positioning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you acknowledge top performers before they leave.

    I have been working at Citibank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love the idea to make a global name that is recognized across the world and to make sure the service one receives in one place is the same as is in other please.

    Cons

    Citibank is very fast to cut peoples' jobs with out any word. They are mostly about their money and status no matter what will do what ever it takes to maintain the a global image.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would stress to upper management to look deeper in the branches and call centers to under stand what the works are really needing. I know that upper management has the best intentions to make the bank money but there is a right way and a wrong way.
