Pros

People are generally proud to work for Citi. Senior management is trying hard to turn the company around.

Cons

Management tends to be short-term focused. The pendulum swings depends on the quarterly financials.

    Pros

    Good perks, some opportunity to work from home. The benefits weren't impressive but are typically so.

    Cons

    There's no avoiding having some bureaucracy in a 200 year old bank with almost a quarter million employees. Their 401K investors lost money, which looks terrible considering I work in equities. The hours were whatever management wanted you to work (late, weekends), but were forgiving if you had to leave during the day.

    Advice to Management

    TBTF will not last forever. Do something about it before regulation catches up. Top down management is murdering productivity, morale, and efficiency, but good luck convincing a wanna-be-central-bank that authoritarianism is bad.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere in the workplace and great campus
    Everyone was very supportive
    Real World experience, you work as much as everyone else
    Learned a LOT

    Cons

    Long hours; I stayed late on most days.
    Not much training; you're throwing into the battle after your first week

    Advice to Management

    Develop an intern to employee transition program. It would be nice to have a transition from the internship program to a development program of some sort.
