Incompetent middle management seeking to chop the tall poppies

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

Pros- Locations all around the world.

- A successful transaction processing business.

- A big brand name on your CV

Cons- Incompetent middle managers whose main responsibilities seem to be to "fabricate relevance", "only pretend to add value" and "brown-nosing".

- Dirty Politics

- Tall poppies will be chopped.

- Absolutely no respect for employees & their personal time

- Startlingly low diversity, especially at the tech & ops. division. If you aren't in the "correct" ethnic group & sub group, you don't stand a chance.

- Merit has little value, only brown-nosing to be part of the right clique can get you ahead

Advice to Senior Management- Value the people you "manage" (or "fail to manage effectively"), you are irrelevant without them.

- Respect the people who can actually deliver, especially if you are not one of them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Love the place. A pity about the politics.

    Managing Director (ICG) (Former Employee)

    I worked at Citi full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: The smart people (and lifetime friendships), the business buzz, the blue chip client franchise, the well-resourced… Cons: The size, and the dysfunctional that is a consequence. You can be rated high-potential one year, and… Advice to Senior Management: 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… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
