Pros

Depending on your department, you can end up working with a great team. Most people in the company are interested in helping you get your work done.

Cons

The Great Recession has forever changed the banking industry and Citi in particular may never be the same, nowadays they are constantly in cost cutting & survival mode. Given the downsizing that has taken place, you can expect to be doing more work for the same salary. Very low transparency among senior management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to live by some of the same standards you set for your employees

    I worked at Citi full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Overall, there was a fun and interesting employee base. I still stay in touch with many of my former peers. Also, It was fairly easy to move within the organization if you wanted to explore other areas.

    Cons

    At times, there was poor oversight of department managers. This may have been due to a good amount of manager turnover. Like many big firms, they were constantly looking to outsource jobs to cut costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people well and they will work hard and be loyal.
