    I have been working at Citco full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    This is a great company, benefits are good, and pay is above market. Management does take care of their employees and there is flexibility when working long hours. The environment is healthy and with little drama.

    Cons

    It is hard to move to other positions.

    I have been working at Citco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    First off, I feel the training the temps get is top notch. Plus, there are experienced individuals who sit in on the hands-on portions of the program to help each individual with any questions. It is true that if a temp does not grasp the concepts to the company's high standards, then their temp contract is terminated. My personal team has been there for me whenever I had questions - the manager even sits down with me...

    Cons

    You know beforehand that 'busy season' hours are LONG. It's not a con as you were told quite blatantly that there would be days that you'd be there 12+ hours...

    Advice to Management

    I think you're doing a great job, my only piece of advice (and this is just personal) is to give the temps an understanding where they stand if they will be hired or not. You know, in case they suddenly don't have a job in May and they need to start the whole process over again.

    Gave our jobs to a satellite office in a foreign country because it would save them money.

    Pros

    learn alot of formulas and excel based usage

    Cons

    management does not value talent, constantly will hire seasonal and then promote them base on performance during busy season. This is to pay lower title works less than competitive wages.

      I worked at Citco full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The company offers a competitive salary with overtime but no bonus and there are times when there is little to no work to be done. The company also provides free beer.

      Cons

      The company is dishonest about everything and they only care about the bottom dollar. They are in the process of moving all work to India and Canada, though the process is slow and you will often find your team missing a few people that seem to never get filled. The hours are erratic and you often found out during the day that you may have to work until 9 or 10 at night. The system is outdated and the company...

      Advice to Management

      Recognize the hard working employees and stop making it about the bottom dollar. There is a reason the company has such high turnover. Also invest in programs and setting up the system so it actually works.
