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

    Pros

    - Full-time Work from Home.
    - Boss who means it when he says "I don't care where you work from as long as you get the job done."
    - Company 401k match is dollar for dollar up to 6% of your salary.

    Cons

    - 50% of employees have been here less than 5 years.
    - After promotion to VP 10 years ago, no rasies come with "lateral" moves at VP level. The only way to get more money is to get promoted to SVP or leave and come back.
    Mgmt has no qualms about bringing in people with less experience and paying them significanly more than people already doing that role.
    - Pension plan was dropped in 2009. Former colleague stated that "One year at Prudential and my pension was more than 10 years at Citi."
    - No matter what you do your raise and bonus are tied to the old collegial review. No matter what you've done if someone else does a better job of presenting his / her employees cases, then you lose. It's one of those places where if they don't like you and you mange to walk on water the response will be "Yea, but you can't swim!"
    - Stuck at bottom of VP scale, only stair-step raises, even after receiving exceptional ratings.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking at your internal employees the way George Steinbrenner looked at his own free agents. Pay you current employees on par with what you're willing to bring in outsiders. Provide pay increases for lateral moves.

    Pros

    Nice team and part of very big team. Leadership is good at Sr. management level. Good brand name. Variety of technology to work with.

    Keep up the good work and I am proud of being working in Citi. There are lot of technology solutions are implemented in Silo in various regions and should be integrated for cost optimization and to leverage across the region to improve both top line and bottom line growth.
