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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Great employee benefits; salary's ok; good internal mobility policies.

    Cons

    Citi is an organization where work life balance seems to be missing. As a global bank you're working pretty much 15 hour days 5.5 days a week.

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

    Pros

    None. I actually felt I went back 5/6 years in my career.

    Cons

    -Worst management ever seen in my career. People were completely careless about the quality of the software being delivered
    -Worst ever procedures and processes. The tools used were obsolete and cumbersome. The processes were horrendously inefficient and time-consuming.
    -NO enthusiasm in the team.
    -No willingness to improve in any aspect. Although management was told how to change processes and procedures, they did not care at all.
    .......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Put more passion on your job otherwise do something else and stop wasting peoples time
