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

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance, daycare onsite, health insurance, management is always available, open communication, positive environment, constant training, if you work hard there are unlimited opprotunities to advance.

    Cons

    Loud production floor, high turn over rate

    Advice to Management

    Stop mass hiring everyone who applies, and only hire those who are truly qualified. Also stop cutting down training class time, so that the new hires dont feel overwhelmed when they get out on the floor.
