Citi hates nearly all of its employees.

Vice President (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsYou can occasionaly find a pocket of good employees to work with it can be tolerable for awhile but will ultimately be short lived.

ConsThere is no shortage of department managers that are willing to grandstand, and cut the throats of their employees in an attempt to make themselves look better. Layoff's are constant and will remain so. Citi is to big to FAIL, to big to mabage, to big to think, to big to care for any shareholder, customer or employee.

Advice to Senior ManagementSell or spinoff every business unit of the company. Disolve the corporation entirely in the manner it stands today. There are no econimies of scale to be had, the amount of waste due to mismanagement is absolutely staggering. Want to cut employees? Eliminate 50 - 75% of the staff from the level of director up.
