Former Employee - Sales Representative in Florence, KY

I worked at Citi full-time for more than a year

Pros

Offers great health, dental, 401k, and maternity benefits
good way to get back in to the work force
plenty of time off including discretionary time (sick time) and vacation time
full time permanent work

Cons

Worked on the phone the entire shift
consistently pressured for high sales, and low call time despite customer needs
logging of all time off of the phone, such as bathroom breaks, etc
management seemed unable to find creative ways to meet the needs of their employees
transferring between departments was extremely difficult unless a good rapport with upper management is established

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Citi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    + Some of smartest and most driven middle management I've worked with.
    + An excellent and robust technological development force.
    + Their pay is pretty decent.
    + Room for professional and personal growth.

    Cons

    - Technology support is almost backward.
    - Bureaucracy turns any business decision into an event, and forces the entire company to change directions like an opium-addled, lumbering giant.
    - Office politics can spell the end of advancement opportunities if you don't get behind the "right" people.

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

    Pros

    Great flexibility to work on different areas and projects

    Cons

    Things take forever to get approved and people who are not at the front end are not committed to produce results. Too much power is given to Risk and Compliance and they lack knowledge of the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to take more risks in changing things and needs to effectively implement work discipline and define a clear and competitive compensation model
