I have been working at Citi full-time for 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 have been working at Citi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to work with all kinds of technology, Citi has a very complex and vast data network

    Cons

    the company is so big so room to grow is minimal at best. You're pretty much like tadpole in a sea. Don't hope to much for a bonus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't focus to much on shareholders, actually listen to employee ideas

    I worked at Citi full-time for 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.
