Good institution with great flaws in key areas of startegy and employee retention.

Relationship Manager (Current Employee)
Johannesburg (South Africa)

ProsThis is a global institution which has best-in-class standards in terms of product offering and dedication to clients. Good training is offered to employees (or at least used to be offered before the expense cutting regime started). Among local banks, Citi is still revered as the best place to work due to misconception that compensaton is the highest.

ConsAs a global institution, Citigroup is often tone-deaf to local needs in terms of compensation increases and benefits packages offered in order to attract the best talent. Very hierachical and full of career-bankers who believe that years worked in the institution equal talent.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management has to give regional management more leeway and control in determining compensation and deciding best strategy to deliver returns to shareholders. One size fits all is not the answer when it comes to positioning Citi as number one in local markets.
