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

    Pros

    This is one of the best places to learn about banking and financial industry. The company has inculcated a great culture of sharing information amongst its rank and file. People are always ready to help. Plus, being global organization helps if you would want to relocate and take on new challenges.

    Cons

    I found too much of outsourcing of technology and processing to third party companies, perhaps raising risks for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    + Global firm
    + Exposure to all financial instruments
    + Ability to move to different offices - both domestically and also internationally
    + Not as focused on which school you attended as other investment banks

    Cons

    + Lost a lot of senior managers during the downturn as their equity became worthless
    + M&A often run by M&A team only with coverage providing support
    + Lacks prestiege of Goldman, Morgan - impairs exit opportunities
    + Long hours

    Advice to Management

    +Should break up corporate and investment bank - currently together. Most IBD analysts do not want to be working on corporate banking pitches - nor is it helpful for interviewing for PE, HF, Corp Dev or other traditional IBD exit opportunities
