    Pros

    The job is challenging, pays well and I enjoy the people I work for.

    The draconian travel rules and tools to get travel approved are antiquated.

    Streamline internal tools and approval processes. Big company... BIG processes, waste of money and time. Trust your people. Fire them if they misbehave financially.

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Depth and breath of products and geographical reach allows for a rich experience. There is also good opportunity for internal mobility.

    Cons

    There is a lot of Politics and fiefdoms. There are still silos within the bank that inhibit best execution. The reduction in resources in NYC and shift to lower cost locations hurts quality.

    Nurture talent, before the brain drain takes its toll

    Pros

    CITi is a big company. There are many opportunities to move around internally. You can always find some thing interesting.

    Still thinking

    Pros

    Great team and work life balance, good mentoring opportunities, competitive pay. It's nice to be at a company and on a team where I actually enjoy coming into work. Lots of transplants with fresh ideas instead of a mafia that's hard to break into.

    Cons

    Hard to move up. Promotions aren't automatic, you need to find an open requisition. This isn't unique to Citi though.
