    I worked at The Citco Group of Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good first job. You can work anywhere after working with Citco Funds Services,Toronto - life gets easier. Some good benefits and good co-workers.

    Cons

    Long hours - no care for employee well being or health. Management expect you to stay past 6 pm every night and dedicate your life to them. Extremely high turnover. Bad staff morale, employees and managers constantly leaving. Poor management of resources and distribution of workload. Advancement brings more hours and stress. Stay away from this place if you want to have a life. Poor bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    There's people in jail for doing less....

    Pros

    - People are great. - Salary moderately higher than that offered by competiting hedge fund companies. - If you want the overtime, it's there. Plently of it!!!!! - Fridges stocked with beer. 3 employee events every year, fully paid and covered by company. as well as a few other monthly perks.

    Cons

    - Overtime. Too much of it! - Very very very low bonuses, if none at all! - Upper management could care less about employee health and welfare. Satisfying client comes first. - Very high turnover rate of key employees as management abuses them. They get fed-up and leave. - Oh, did I forget to mention...................overtime, too much of it!!!! - Getting promoted at Citco is actually a con!!!! Junior and Senior accountants get paid overtime. Once you get to Supervisor, you work for free after 40 hours and you're obligated to stay late.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminating overtime would be a start. The only way to do that would be to evenly distribute the workload amongst employees. To alleviate workload, existing employees must be used as new hires won't be able to contribute for at least 3 months due to lack of knowledge of system and procedures.
