Senior management have became stuck on self survival at the cost of those doing the work.

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Job is stable. Benefits are fair. Ample paid time off. Company is very structured, and provides great training.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Management was condescending towards employees. Promotions were not based on merit. Many of the unit managers were promoted based on seniority alone, it was obvious that they didn't possess the leadership skills. Call centers easily burn their employees out, hence the very low retention rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although the call center is a small part of Citigroup's global business, it has a large impact in the small city that it is.

    I worked at Citi

    Pros

    Great Benifits and childcare onsite. Cafe was excellent as well. I think having a large well-known company on your resume is a plus when looking to advance. Time off was very generous

    Cons

    Salary pay was low compared to national average. Pay increase scale was very slack. Almost making it impossible to keep up with cost of living increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the way you give compensation and value annual reviews.
