Pros

* Great work/life balance * Vast majority of people are friendly and willing to help * Global firm, with regular interaction to all corners of the world

Cons

* London is no longer seen as a growth site for back office functions such as Technology, thus attrition is high and back-fill is usually elsewhere in the globe * Poor pay compared to market rates * Limited scope for career progression

Advice to Management

Citi has many layers within the organisation. Often messages of direction and values are lost in translation between the executive leadership team in New York, and the regional management teams. When drilling into the regions, staff are not empowered to fulfil the aspirations of the firm without going back to New York for approval.

    Pros

    Good name recognition on resume. Good place to start but not great for career because it was a satellite office.

    Cons

    Revolving door at higher management, no consistency in direction, lower level people end up cleaning up the mess left by top management. Always thinks customer is king but do not care for employees. Middle management people were good but were constrained by corporate policies.

    Advice to Management

    A happy employee makes a happy customer. Not the other way round.

    Pros

    Has some world class professionals

    Cons

    Mid level management too clubby - makes decisions based on own "silo" mentality as opposed to what is good for the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Cut off / revamp the mid level management. Walk the floor more!
