I worked at Citi (more than 10 years)

Pros

The benefits are amazing, and if you work hard and receive favorable employee ratings, they will move heaven and earth to work with you on a work life balance.

Cons

The leadership is spotty. Unit managers have considerable autonomy over their employees and work group which has many pros and cons. My biggest complaint was in advancement. In 16 years, I never was clear on what goes into advancement decisions. Honestly my direct supervisors were equally clueless. They would mentor me and other employees for weeks on their own time only to watch as we weren't granted interviews. It is not unusual to see a 20 year old on his or her first job obtain a supervisory position while people who had degrees and years of experience in similar roles at other companies never be considered. And the corporate culture is obsessed with change. If something works, it will be replaced by a new process with limited testing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time developing your employees than your software. Give clear guidelines for employees pursuing advancement. And share this with supervisors so that their time and ours aren't wasted.

    I worked at Citi

    Pros

    I'm familiar with the company. I know several people who currently work there. The company utilizes technology and processes that I understand and am completely competent with. The position I interviewed for was one I am fully capable of performing well. The position is located near to my home.

    Cons

    The company is currently downsizing. Many positions are in transition or being eliminated completely. Many people are nervous about their continued career prospects. Many positions are being moved out of the state, thus forcing people to either relocate or be downsized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with the workers. Be honest with yourselves. Admit mistakes and take all necessary corrective actions.
