    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Citi has ok pay though less then other banks in the area. The health benefits are good though and the regular level managers support employees where they can.

    Cons

    Citi does not have loyalty to their employees. The culture is all about upper management making themselves look good. They will use whomever they need to do so, then let any negative impact roll downhill while they prosper.

    Manager creates opportunities for your personal growth. Lovely people to work with. If you like to be challenged, the work environment is fast paced.
