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

Pros

Good benefits and on campus amenities.

Cons

Realized the on campus amenities are so you never have an excuse to leave.
Never felt so undervalued as an employee.
Bad apples are left to spoil the bunch, even when the manager admits to knowing they are there.
Systems are so antiquated, you do very manual processes.
50+ hour weeks is the norm. Including coming in on occasional Saturdays. I have seen senior managers working well in excess of 60 hours and coming in on weekends.
Very poor work/life balance.
Strong individual contributors are promoted to lead, but turn out to be terrible leaders.
Never been so unimpressed with management.
Tiny desks to work at.
Bureaucracy that rivals the federal government.
Outsourcing more jobs to India.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I know you are busy trying to save the company and get off of government welfare, but you are working your people very hard with very little reward. Fixing your technology problems is a good start. 8 settlement systems really? No one had the foresight to think, hmmm maybe merging these would be a good idea? Fix your bureaucracy problem, that will cut labor costs significantly. I once needed 8 approvals to get access to a new system. Try telling your employees you think they are valuable even if it is a lie. Didn't even get that much. Never felt so undervalued. I turned in my two weeks notice and have never felt so good.

    I have been working at Citi full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits packages, 3 weeks off, extra week off every 5 years...

    Cons

    If you want to advance at the Tucson site, kiss ass, volunteer and be the gopher guy. If you dare to speak up with any emotion or passion, kiss your opportunities to move up or laterally goodbye!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If an employee has feedback, good or bad, listen to them!

    Pros

    Citi contributes 6% of your salary to the 401K plan instead of pension Plan

    Cons

    Weekly Layoffs; They will have you move at your expense to a different state or country at the local pay rate as long as it's lower than what your currently making; Senior Management changes corporate direction without notice and no planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Research the problem and execute a plan then adjust the plan when problems arise. Don't come up with a new plan in a total different direction which cost the firm money and your only reaction is to cut jobs with the exception of the person who came up with the orginal plan.
