Pros

Diverse company with abundance of lateral and vertical opportunities; overseas opportunities if you desire; decent pay scale comparing to similar financial service companies; good work life balance.

Cons

matrix organization created by inefficient centers of "excellence". Bureaucratic in many areas that creates unnecessary work; Lack of true vision from senior management, more block and tackling and passive reactions. Poor presentation skills throughout, very common to see powerpoint presentation as simple as Excel Copy and paste. way too much restrictions caused partially by regulations, employees are scared of saying what they think.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

need to strengthen talent base and grow leaner

    Pros

    Working at Citigroup provides employees with great experience in the financial services field. It is a great item for one's resume and possesses a measure of prestige. Benefits are good. Tuition reimbursement and 401k contribution matching are examples of employee incentives.

    Cons

    It is a difficult place to get into and once in the door, advancement is extremely difficult. Professionalism is very important so the atmosphere isn't very relaxed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase rentention, decrease employee turnover.
