I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

- AMAZING maternity leave benefits and work from home flexibility. I would recommend to any woman who wants a full time job during pregnancy and while raising small children. Women can combine the 13 weeks of paid maternity leave with other paid time off (vacation + sick days) to get up to 4.5 months off paid at 100%. Citi also allows up to 6 months off total (including paid and unpaid time) for each maternity leave. That is hard to beat. - Citi also offers generous flexible work arrangements. Almost everyone in my office works remotely 1-3 days per week. Some people even work remotely 100%. - Our Citi Cards office is very casual and laid back. Everyone is friendly and the environment is noncompetitive. - Senior managers are very approachable and open to new ideas.

Cons

- Internal promotions are limited, but some employees seem content to stay in the same position for 30 years. - Likewise, yearly raises based on merit and even raises for promotions are minimal. Many employees leave Citi to take a high paying job, then come back a couple years later in order to get a sufficient raise. - The employee costs of the health care plans have been increasing significantly each year.

Advice to Management

Promote from within and your employee retention and loyalty will greatly improve.

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well known bank, Full-time work with benefits, retirement, vacation.

    Cons

    Poor management, no real definition of expectations from year to year. This was a very hard company to advance your career unless you happened to be a recent colllege grad. HR was of no help in this area, either. They do discriminate based on age. Also, their technology was always slow and systems were inefficient which made working in Operations very challenging. The bank lacked organization and principles.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers and pay attention to the surveys. Promote based on merit. Some of them have been there too long and don't know anything about boosting morale or treating employees with respect and dignity.
