    I worked at Citco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Not much else, salary and vacation were standard. Definitely more cons here than any pro working here.

    Cons

    IT group is failing. Stretched too thin and no value in employees. Revolving door is real, and top players will deny the obvious reasons. Unable to make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Starts with the employee, not just about the customer.

    Pros

    The benefits and work-life balance are very good. The Malvern office feels very close-knit. Hopefully you won't mind working overtime in the winter during busy season... but they do pay 1.5x overtime.

    Cons

    -Long hours during the winter
    -Low entry-level pay for staff financial reporting accountants

    I have been working at Citco full-time

    Pros

    The culture is very laid back and fun. The people that work at Citco are very diverse and with different personalities.

    Cons

    There is a huge lack of growth and opportunities to get to higher positions. It seems like upper management, who aren't that qualified to be leading, try to keep bright minds down.

    Advice to Management

    Get better management and promote deserving employees.

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, free drinks, friendly people - some very intelligent individuals. There is opportunity to move around the company and work in exotic locations if that is something you are interested in.

    Cons

    Too much upper management - everyone is a manager even though they've been doing the same thing for years. Tough to build a long term career, but great place to earn a steady income as long as you don't get laid off

    Advice to Management

    Try to show employees how they can progress their careers either at the company or within the industry

    I worked at Citco full-time

    Pros

    The location was nice and the medical benefits were nice. They used to be free, now they charge your per paycheck, but still good coverage.

    Cons

    What was promised in terms of quality of hires I would be able to make to expected travel, responsibilities, etc. were completely different once I was hired. Budget for new hires was slashed and resources were thin. More interested in the bottom line instead of getting the job done right and then trimming back.

    Advice to Management

    Let the Malvern office control its own destiny. Having the management team sit in Jersey City is a bad business model. Quality of work life balance needs improvement.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. Not a typical high pressure finance job.

    Cons

    Management does not seem to be open about bonus pay. Also, not open to increasing 401k match or giving frequent raises.

    I worked at Citco (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good entry level company to start off with right out of college. There is lots to learn. Great benefits. The people are friendly.

    Cons

    Advancement depends on what you work on and who your boss is. Month ends are very busy. Communication is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to recognize everyone who does a good job, not just those who happen to be in your clique.
