Pros

The company name sound
Employees here are nice

Cons

Lack of respect to employees and company's policy from management team
Managers really act like manager, you will definitely have the impression that you are “Managed" Pushing, Micro Management ...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Citi still owes me about 1 year's on-call payment. Are you going to pay me back?
According to the employee hand book sent together with the offer, there is $30/day off hour support compensation. But there is no such payment until early 2012 for the near shore team which was setup in 2009 in Mississauga. We understand something might get overlooked for a new team, but as a big (or famous) company, how can you pretend this is a new policy and only start the payment from early 2012? Should't you apologize to employees for your negligence and make up all the missed pay from the very first day the new team started the off hour support?

To job seeker:
Above is only one of the many samples that we never think they could happen in such a big/famous company. So please take them into your consideration while making decision. Good luck!

    Pros

    Money, skills opportunity. Viewed well by other employers in local market. Can get lucky and get a good team.

    Cons

    Hours, can be a hateful place to work, very political. Take the experience and run to London. Experience is dependent on which team you are put in so somewhat of a dice game unless you are coming in by knowing someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide on something and then do it. Less mind changing and running with the latest fad. Different departments are running in different directions!

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

    Pros

    Good basic salary package. Good admin and IT support system. Good opportunity to build and establish contacts with clients and senior people in the industry.

    Cons

    Senior management do not really know what is going on and not much direction or focus as to where the business is heading. There are "snake" colleagues around (so beware) and the sad thing is management continue to ignore bad peer review comments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to open their eyes wide and treasure the good, hardworking ones instead of employees who are just good at talking only.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
