Current Employee - Analyst II in Buffalo, NY

I have been working at Citi full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Very thorough training, encouraged to spend time at work on learning
Candid and straightforward HR policies, fair and no drama
Lots of time off, 3 weeks personal, 10 holidays, plus sick-time as needed
Plentiful movement opportunities within the company
Professional, mature co-workers

Cons

Other than the high 401k contribution, benefits are lack-luster for such a large company
Large disconnect from IT and operations, technology improvements are few and unimpressive

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be more "embedded" IT and MIS positions throughout departments. Reaching out to large off-site development teams for system improvements are prohibitively expensive, take too long, and lack the polish common in todays applications. There also needs to be more communication between the existing IT and MIS developers, many systems and resources are underutilized.

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

    Pros

    Useful for a competing offer at a competent firm. If you're facing deportation and need employment they'll do - I got a friend a job who needed one in a hurry. Useful for a long short - short C and long GS.

    Cons

    Too many to list. None. It was awful. They fired people left right and center. We called it playing Survivor Citigroup. So glad I found a new job before they fired me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not the worker bees that are the problem, it's the Managing Directors.

    Good initial year, neutral second, unbearable 3rd. Time for the next thing.

    Pros

    A Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Easier to get promoted if you come from an outside firm. A lot of people leave the company and come back later in a promoted capacity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take the time to groom your young talent.
