Pros

Large company. Many opportunities to move around. Flexible work schedule- could be bad for you depends.. see cons below. A well known brand- good to have on your resume.

Cons

Currently not in a good place financially, so this will reflect on your pay, bonuses, and overall job satisfaction. hardly any work and life balance, esp. if you are in IT area. Flexible work schedule also means that you are expected to work from home if you can't get things done in the 9-10 hrs you spent in the office. Forget about asking for more resources in this economy.

Advice to Management

Please compensate your employees based on their merit not based on how long they have been with the company. That's why you can't keep a talent!

    Pros

    Since this is a large corporation, there are plenty of opportunities for movement. As far as technology, some organizations use the latest cutting edge stuff, others seem to be stuck in legacy/old technologies. The key is being in the right team.

    Cons

    Since this is a very large company, things don't change quickly. Due to layers of management, communication gets lost between layers and laterally.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the layers of "management", trim the "fat" (and there are a lot of people who don't seem to be doing much, while others on the same floor are inundated with process/work), invest in new technologies, be nimble and quick to make decisions, communicate effectively to lower levels.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work at Citigroup would be the amount of potential exposure you can get to all of the different aspects of banking/financial services.

    Cons

    Career advancement is poor - there is not much mobility. This is definitely related to the current market conditions, although all other banks are performing at a much better rate. This is a company where if times are good, then things are good. If times are bad like right now, it is quite depressing. The morale is very low as there is no incentive to do any more than your minimal requirements.

    Advice to Management

    The most important aspect is to keep the employees happy to avoid a mass exodus when the economy actually turns around. Most people are just waiting for the next opportunity, whether it be a better one or the same.
