Former Employee - Collections Specialist in Jacksonville, FL
Former Employee - Collections Specialist in Jacksonville, FL

I worked at Citi full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Nice work location, plenty of parking. I tendered my resignation as soon as I found a better job.

Cons

Poor Salary and unwilling to negotiate on better pay. Software (ESP) used to micro-manage every single minute of work including bathroom breaks. Managers were telling employees they could not have more than 2 3-minute bathroom breaks on an 8-hour shift. Mind you the bathrooms were at the ends of the building and it was a large massive room with hundreds of cubicles. Many employees with management titles but zero management skills. Management is unreliable and plays favoritism.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is no need to micro-manage employees with unreliable software to increase productivity.
