I have been working at Citi full-time (More than a year)

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 Management

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 Management

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

    Pros

    As a multi-national firm, Citi offers a wealth of opportunities to work in many different locations or interest areas. You will find talented people throughout the company and there is a well-defined track into upper management.

    Cons

    As in any large organization, Citi is not free of its bureaucracy. Especially during the financial crisis, the bonuses were cut, changes weren't widely accepted, and the general culture was surrounded by fear of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    You need to do a better job in safeguarding your employees. There needs to be a sense of caring and security for their employees that needs to be even more prevalent in times of hardship.
