I have been working at Citi full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Friendly team but flexibility changes from manager to manager. Hours are standard work hours not too many late nights. I generally work 8:30 to 18:00. Career progression can be quite good if you get on well with your management team. Basic salary is above average. Extensive facilities in the building.

Cons

Poor bonuses in the operations area. Working from home is an option in only an emergency. Systems in the operations areas are very old and lots of processes are very manual. System upgrades are in progress but the new systems don't seem as good as ones I've used in other companies 7 years ago.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more generous with your operations staff bonuses. Question the quality of the new systems you are installing. Move with the times and install more flexible working hours for your staff.

    I worked at Citi full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    decent salary, investment banking domain

    Cons

    non-transperent appraisal system, lot of politics, bureaucracy, unnecessary management hierarchy, lack of accontability. When things are goign well bosses want to take credit but moment something goes wrong blame game begins to find convenient targets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    review the current organisation structure. Get transperency and accountablity culture. Non technical staff in IT needs to be given pink slip !!!
