Pros

With a bit of luck you can participate in large-scale IT projects. Working with globally distributed teams can be satisfying. The carrier path can be good if you are interested in management.

Cons

A lot of bureaucracy and red tape. People are too often treated as resources. The management elitysm can also sometimes get irritating. There is definitely not enough communication between teams - people tend to hide behind processes and often focus on finding an excuse not to get involved with given initiative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to the people who are in the trenches and a bit less to these who justify their existence by number of conference calls invitations sent or documents generated.

    I worked at Citi

    Pros

    It's a subsidiary of Citibank N.A. and a member of Citi. International communications/cooperation/teamwork skills can be gained from global dev model.

    Cons

    Management team failed to show the respects to their local stuff. Hard to leave the most valuable talent. Not open culture. Salaries are not satisfactory

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect their stuff. Keep the talents and increase the salaries.

    I have been working at Citi

    Pros

    Met a number of good, interesting, competent people in my time here. Some folks are genuinely helpful.

    Cons

    It often takes ages to get things done due to the "processes" you have to be compliant with, which themselves seem to change on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline processes
