    Former Employee - IS COB & Controls Senior Analyst in New York, NY

    I worked at Citi full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to roll-up your sleeves and work hard to solidify and expand your skillsets. From the perspective of the IS function, there is much to learn and a great deal of interaction with different technology units outside of your own group.

    Cons

    Need to be able to thrive in an extreme high pressured enviroment, juggling multiple projects plus your normal workload, and completing them successfully in a short timeframe.

    Former Employee - Vice President in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Very international and diverse group of people. One of the best trading floors overlooking the West-side highway. You can be creative, and there is very little micro-management.

    Cons

    Poor management. No unity within the team. People are only concerned of themselves and their title and status in company. You need to 'play politics' to go up the rankings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be good to your employees - they are your biggest assets. Know why you hire them, and grow your juniors/analysts/associates/VPs to be better all-starts. Get to know them, and make them excel in what they are good at.
