I have been working at Citi full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Work/Life balance is good, in fact they are heavy into Flexible Work Schedules, I am allowed to work from home two days a week, which is great. Other benefits are good as well, 401k, vacation, sick time, etc. The work is challenging most times.

Cons

Citi prides itself on being a meritocracy, which is supposed to mean - "A system in which advancement is based on individual ability or achievement." But that is just not true, even after getting a very good year end performance evaluation, I did not receive a pay raise, for the THIRD YEAR IN A ROW!!!!! The usual nonsense about not having money in the budget, yeah right, I'm sure my manager got a nice raise and a bonus too!

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

    Pros

    Some good people to work with, nothing to overly stressful, tons of lateral mobility to gain a full experience.

    Cons

    Never got a raise, thankless, can catch even your closest co-workers in terrible moods regularly, HR is too busy trying to create such a comfortable work place that they forget about professionalism, no bonuses, witness lots of lay offs especially their most loyal people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your employees.

    I worked at Citi as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay and exposure to management of clients

    Cons

    Disregard for employees, no work-life balance. Language is very crude, and you are glued to your blackberry. You will always be on call, and cannot stray far from your office at anytime of the day may it be 3am on Saturday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are more than just a tool, they are people too. Upper management is in hast to fire their own with the top tier, and thus lower employees are virtually disposable.
