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

    Pros

    Great benefits, the company is very open and diverse, they offer "Angel Days" an extra day off a year if you donate an hours pay each pay period. They offer a free day off to allow you to volunteer in a charity. The facility I was in had a world class cafe with chef prepared offerings and a gym for $12 a month on site.

    Cons

    The old saying that your job is only as good as your boss is true. If you don't have a good working relationship with your manager and there is no growth opportunity or transfer opportunity where you work in the company, you are doomed. That was my experience. The entire floor is set up in tiny half walled cubicles. Everyone and I mean everyone (VPs included) were in them. It did not matter how much quiet or concentration your job required or what the stakes were if you made a mistake - you were in a bull pen environment . No one respected your space or need for quiet in that environment. The managers all had conference calls at their desks, meetings at their desks. Parties in other departments on the floor. Citi was also very bad about having "clicks" and the management tended to be hobbled by senior management to the point that they had no real decision making authority. What resulted was a "Stepford" like unit. There was just no escape and no one to tell or who would listen.

    Advice to Management

    To SVPs, stop being afraid of your manager and find your voice. Notice if you have a manager that has never hired anyone that ends up staying as their employee. It could be the problem is not the employees but the manager. Be aware that the culture there is to be afraid of management and to never speak to them. That really should be a red flag to you. Fear and intimidation is no way to manage. Ensure that your management team is not managing by withholding information or playing favorites. Having to re-hire and re-train staff costs the company a fortune in the end.

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

    Pros

    Challenging work, great resume builder. I had an excellent manager and team. Ability to work from home when necessary. Good focus on ethics.

    Cons

    Back stabbing and snide comments are not uncommon. Long hours--to the point that my good salary was just mediocre because I was working 70 hr work weeks. Management does not recognize the changes that really need to be made to make the business efficient and effective--off-shoring may cut expenses on paper, but the technology lags and other inefficiencies will still remain and even be exasperated. Teams were under-resourced to make the books look better (6 mo + delays, with no change to workload or team productivity expectations).

    Advice to Management

    Don't tolerate employees who back stab others. Map out pain points and fix them, to include creating processes for smoother technology changes with more robust inter-system testing. Under-resourcing teams to show expense saves is very short term and will snowball into bigger problems. Manage change.

    Work life balance is great. A lot of people work from home and it allows you to have a flexible schedule. Compensation is high.

    Not many people here at Citi seem to care about their job. Many people get in late and leave early and the office atmosphere is lacking to say the least
