    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We have good benefits, 401K Match, and good training within to take advantage while in company. Flexible work arrangements and good old fashioned managers.

    Cons

    Sometimes too big of a corporation to get procedures changed but can suggest changes anytime.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Senior leadership is upfront and invested in organization and people.
    Dedicated talented staff members with flexible work arrangements.
    Opportunity to take charge and contribute.

    Cons

    Cost savings measures are driving great talent and intellectual knowledge out of the company.
    Focus on saving each team, division and department taking priority..
    While a globally diverse workforce, promotions are driven by location over talent.

    Advice to Management

    Every organization that goes through significant cost savings measures eventually realizes they cut "too deep". Sometimes when it's too late. Recommend that as much time and effort is put into understanding organizational change impact as much as what financially makes sense to cut now.

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic, hands down
    Great work/life balance for my position
    Remote working opportunities were above average
    On site extras like free health clinic and cafeteria were great to have

    Cons

    Seriously below average pay for my position
    Way to many managers
    Organization of management was seriously confusing
    Very easy to be siloed into your role and have no way out or any room for career advancement
    So much threat of layoffs caused so many people to dread coming to work each day
    Company harps on “Power of One” but doesn’t practice what it preaches
    Was asked to “spy and report back” to management on peers for productivity
    Senior management doesn’t recognize the hard work properly

    Advice to Management

    Actually pay attention to your employees, they want to help the team and the business, but there are so many things in the way of accomplishing that goal.
    Just because productivity is down doesn’t mean that people need to be watched like high schoolers, marketplace forces do have an effect on our job, keep that in mind.
