Current Employee - Vice President in New York, NY

I have been working at Citi full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The people are what make things worthwhile. If you are self-motivated and fearless you will be noticed.

Cons

O&T is filled with a lot of yes men. Lots of presentations and little action. Not unusual to receive employee awards and find yourself out of a job thereafter.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest. Be courageous. Stop with the rhetoric and take action already. You can't tell people there are opportunities when you decide to ship the bulk of jobs to low cost areas.

    It's a bureaucracy, like working for the government.

    I have been working at Citi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to work from home. They hire very experienced people who are smart.

    Cons

    You actually don't do work at Citi. All you do is write powerpoint presentations for management that no one does anything productive with. Its painful. The processes and systems make being productive very difficult. New employees threaten the legacy people with different ideas.
    The company is so cheap with the employees its embarrassing, but management wastes so much money its scary. Its amazing that a bank could be so mismanaged. Senior Management is all about politics & optics. Too many people have never worked anywhere else so they dont know that there are different ways that work can be done more effectively and efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dismantle the bureaucracy. Stop wasting employees time justifying the work you want them to do and actually let them do work. Get rid of the fancy suits, posh offices and perks for yourself and treat your employees better. Roll up your sleeves and actually do some work too. The facade you have created is very old school.
