I worked at Citi as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Some great people and a wonderful place to work overall. Citi is a diverse collection of cultures and backgrounds. You will meet everyone from geniuses to raving lunatics. Most people are just "good people" who are dedicated to their families and their careers.

Cons

Can be very political on the IT side. Success is not always measured in terms of getting things done. Sometimes the workarounds are similar to going across the street to the grocery store by walking in the opposite direction and waiting until you circle the globe.

Advice to IT management. Talk to the traders. They are smart and have clear opinions on what they need. Let the business measure success.

    Pros

    flexible hours, challenging work, good facilities

    Cons

    Greedy Manager, no managing experience, no people skills. Company allows manager to keep as much as they can of the bonuses pool.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't keep all bonuses for yourself
