    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The ability to career path and learn many aspects of the industry. The mission and values have meaning and can benefit you if you own them.

    Cons

    The pay structure for internal transfers is not competitive. If you are qualified for the job you should be paid accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to spend more time understanding the job you are tasking us to do. All too often direction is changed without truly understanding what effect the change in one functional group will have on another. I would also recommend training in change management for leaders to understand the importance of engaging employees to buy in to change when it's transformative. This will increase productivity and moral.

    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Global firm allows for mobility, solid pay, change occurring for the better under current leadership, NY Headquarter reno beautiful, smart diverse people, firm trying to come closer together which takes a lot of time but moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    Everyone doing more with much less even as client base grows, middle managers overloaded with work, promotions without pay increase "dry promos", end of year performance rating system needs to be adjusted (forced rankings, bell curve), stale out dated systems where you can still not see say client info in real time. Cost of benefits rising & rising every year with very limited choices compared to other firms.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should be more communicative to firm about whats happening in a non formal way. Still have senior MD heads operating in Silos and not working together with partners to bridge that, each business is still out for themselves. Services should be delivered seamlessly to all clients even if they reside in a different business and qualify for a solution - Suggestion, hire an internal global team to go throughout the bank and uncover areas where if the businesses worked together & built partnerships, revenue and client satisfaction will increase by X. Global bank but no partnership cross business to allow for global account opening for businesses or individuals - each time is a major struggle and poor experience for the client, start paying top performing internal employees! HR will watch a top performer say with 10 yrs experience leave and pay their new replacement 20% more a week later, makes absolutely zero sense - HR needs a total revamp/change from top down to change this mentality. Lastly, allow managers the time to hire quality candidates, headcount allocation comes and a week later pulled or used by another team. Immense pressure to hire in a very short time, often getting the wrong candidate just to have another body on the team. Flawed process and way of thinking.
