Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Opportunity to acquire knowledge and work on a varied environment. Excellent local teamwork.

Cons

Too centralized and very unflexible place. Does not supports feedback from employees. Medium management has very little decision making. Top management is focused on short time resources and learns very little from previous experiences. Promotes the "yes-man" culture. Very little thorough analysis is done on many decisions when is idea that is pushed downward. Extremelly use of politics. When a specific regiona makes money the triumphs arfe not shared but when a critical situatiion is encountered lower level employees pay for the incorrect management decision. "Greed is good" is the silent culture of management. "The Citi never sleeps neither does the medium management employees!". No consideration for customer service levels as long as no complany CEO complaints. Employee reviews are manipulated from seniors byspassing the direct managers ratings.

Advice to Management

Improve "honest" communications. Do not have written policies and principles that you dont intend to honor. Focus on custoemr satisfaction to maintain long term profits and customer loyalty. Improve employees morale to increase loyalty. Globalization/regionalizsation isnot always the solution. Custoemrs want to maitain realtions wiht the company not the machines. Elimination of local jobvs will eventually impact profits.

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

    Pros

    Great place to build experience and learn the business of banking. There are many different roles, levels, and groups to learn from and gain exposure.

    Cons

    Very large organization creates challenges with internal politics, can be difficult to navigate and be seen or heard by the right people. Constant re-organizations, layoffs, and difficult economic situation has driven morale low.
