    3.infrastructure is good but the machines are worst only 60 Gb hard disk that includes your os, n other software within month you run out of space.
    4. work from home

    Cons

    1. configuring your machine environment takes 2 months no help from others.
    2. sometimes you need to wait almost 2 months to get required software's n managers keep asking for deliveries.
    3. The onsite counter part in no mood to help in KT feels job insecurity.
    4. Majorly support work don't join such company who tells lies before joining n then change stance.
    5. Fake positions- vice president & presidents do coding here lol :P
    6. work from home is not facility its burden you will or allow to use only when you working out of office hours.
    7. No leave in cash or transfer of leaves to next year.
    8. hard work in terms sitting in office u r good in managers book if u sit 12 hours in company
       though you have no work.
    9. No intra day trading allowed by employee for others also you need to take approval of your manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Look the process for machine setups & hardware
    2. Train managers to differentiate between smart work n hard work.
    3. Don't tell people you having development work n then assign them to support work

    I worked at Citi full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The smart people (and lifetime friendships), the business buzz, the blue chip client franchise, the well-resourced infrastructure (esp from the outside looking in), the opportunities to experience and grow as a professional.

    Cons

    The size, and the dysfunctional that is a consequence. You can be rated high-potential one year, and be made redundant the next if you happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your gender diversity stats, and the number of hi-pos you are losing, voluntarily or involuntarily. Great respect for Corbat, but I wonder if he's really got his eye on the talent drain. The company is managing by numbers and not by focusing on the lifeblood of its business -- its people!
