    Supportive management
    Great benefit choices
    Holidays / Vacation time.

    Cons

    I didn't like the hotel choice / travel program. It was cumbersome and there were always good choices.
    Bonus' were based on peer salaries, company profits and your ratings. They weren't always consistent.
    Benefits were a little expensive but they covered a lot of things.

    Advice to Management

    Management and peers are important. Make sure you make the best choice possible.

    Pros

    Professional, team building, global, fast paced, many locations, Some flexibility depending on job role

    Cons

    High turn over at lower levels makes training those of a lower level a bit challenging , separation of levels of network support creates challenges in receiving accurate information quickly

    Advice to Management

    I have nothing to add here. This is a global company run by mostly technicians that have worked their way up over the years in the IT side of the house.

    Pros

    Great time-off package if you can manage work/life balance, good health benefits and 401K match.

    Cons

    Same cons exist at every company. Just a matter of perspective and is dependent on your ability to manage the roadblocks or obstacles. Same politics exist everywhere. SSDD!

    Advice to Management

    Ok?

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

    Pros

    Good pay, ability to work from home, interesting work at times, nice workers and managers if you luck out, otherwise you're screwed.

    Cons

    Very cutthroat and political environment. You have to watch your back and worry about someone pulling something on you or your team. Long pointless meetings, low morale.

    No incentive to care as you can be re-organized out of your role. I've seen departments disappear overnight and people hold their breath when am email comes with an important announcement. Is this the end? Is my manager fired? Am I? These are questions you'll soon learn to ask working at Citi. But don't worry, they're just making some fine adjustments so we can work more efficiently and cohesively.

    When you have directors asking you to frame questions a certain way so we can prove your department's value to senior directors, you know you have a problem. Very hard to move up, you have to come externally to have a higher title. Instead of employees, we now use contractors for a lot of roles, but you have to worry if they're planning to replace you with them.

    If you're still reading this, you're probably going to take the job here despite all this. I don't blame you, it pay well and might be close to you and could get you some banking experience. BE SURE YOU INTERVIEW YOUR DIRECT MANAGER! Find out how they work and their attitude towards their subordinates. I have seen some real crummy managers who are not flexible and micromanage everything. Nothing sucks more than seeing coworkers live it up with a manager that's great while you're stuck with one telling you off for something stupid like going to the restroom. While I'm exaggerating about the restroom, I hope you get my point.

    Advice to Management

    People see right through you as you bring in contractors and swap out employees. What you are doing might make sense short term, but you end up paying long term with low morale and having your talent flee.
