    I have been working at Citi full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Citi has a lot of people who make this place special
    -The large array of products and segments allow Citi to help many people inside and out with their financial needs

    Cons

    -There are some very manual parts of the business that could be automated
    -Compliance does not usually grant any exceptions even if it means clients are caught in the middle of red tape

    Advice to Management

    Try to streamline some processes that clients are involved in.

    Pros

    Great Learning environment with good policies and procedures

    Cons

    pay is too equal! harder and more intelligent workers get paid same as the ones who do minimal and do not think too much out of there little cubicle of not my job attitude..

    Advice to Management

    Should pay employees according to a true end of year review not just a minimal pay justification to spend the allotted amount of pay increases per year.. No incentive to be the best if the worst gets the same yearly every year. it brings down the great aspirations of a future for the best and brightest.
