I worked at Citi full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great resume builder, lots of opportunity to grow. Smart people. Excellent benefits and 401k overall.

Cons

Still lots of silos across company despite years of "One Citi" efforts. Certainly has the bureaucracy one would expect at an organization of 300k employees. Constant expense pressure, restructuring, and threat of lay-offs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I believe the company is on the right track, and needs to stick with the plan despite the pain and external market pressure.

    I have been working at Citi as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Huge company which presumably brings career opportunities in other areas.

    Cons

    IT organizations support business areas in a SILO. Some of the SILOs are very poorly managed. Detailed project estimates are doubled at each level they progress up the chain. By the time a project is actually budgeted it is 4 times the original, accurate estimate. When it is brought it under that HUGE number, each manager in the chain takes a bow and is applauded - when in reality they should be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify the legacy middle management people that have been working together for too long and move them around or out.
