    There are no Pros to work at Citi.

    Cons

    Tedious work. Indifferent management and culture. No advancement.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management: Create other value positions within the company so that you can have loyal employees who look for more than just a paycheck. We need real opportunites and advancement.

    Pros

    If you are interested in global companies, Citi is very global and there are many jobs where you will have the opportunity to interact with colleagues overseas. And the people are by and large quite smart.

    Cons

    Senior management (as of 2009, at any rate) were a bunch of chickens. When there were headcount reductions, it was never the most senior executives, it was always a few levels below. That way they didn't have to face the pain of firing someone they know, they just made their underlings do it. And they didn't have much rhyme or reason to the cut backs. They would also fund departments without requiring other groups to work with them. If the other groups decided not to, then the newly funded group was out in the cold - but management didn't care if their investment was wasted. Again, they lacked the courage, foresight and vision to be forceful about driving change. No wonder Citi is mired in craziness!

    Advice to Management

    Senior execs need to walk the talk and enforce their strategies through words AND actions. They need to reinforce their strategies constantly or no one will take them seriously. That's partly why they have had such a hard time recovering from the banking debacle.

    Pros

    health, dental, 401k, educational reimbursment, on site child care, shifts, decent severance packages---icing on the cake of getting laid off which was actually a good thing

    Cons

    Really, really bad corporate culture. Good people get hired but don't stay long. Unfriendly, not open to change, poor communication, punitive. Very far behind the curve in systems and business practices. Just not a nice place to work as evidenced by the look on the employees' faces.

    Advice to Management

    Not inclined to offer any because I didn't seem to make a difference before. The word is out though Expect an exodus when the economy changes if things there don't.

    Pros

    They have the largest network in the world so you receive exposure to a lot of different case studies and every kind of outage that can occur. If you are self motivated and very quick study, you can become a world class network engineer and move those skills into any network and become really great.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is terrible. They do not foster learning and operate in a very haphazard way. If you don't know something you will be afraid to ask because you will be belittled for not knowing it. Gossip among the "in-crowd" has caused alot of really good engineers to leave your employ because of a false sense of entitlement and backstabbing. To get started in the network is a nightmare of red tape. It is a real "boys club" where u have to be "liked" to get ahead regardless of talent. Extremely prejudicial against Spanish speakers. Worked more and paid less.

    Advice to Management

    Correct your managements attitude about subordinates and foster a more open environment to learning. New technologies are coming out everyday and NO ONE can know everything. Also being friends should not be a criteria for promotions. Reward your most prized network people to encourage more Spanish speakers to join your organization. I have discouraged anyone I know from working there. One friend did not head me advice and he worked for you for a week and took a lesser salary just to leave your employ.

    Pros

    Interacted well with other analysts who started at the same time as me. Trainers were helpful during the training period.

    Cons

    I was among a group of anti-money laundering analysts working at Citigroup through a temp agency. We were told that the job was temp-to-permanent, and that as soon as we passed a quality check we would be hired as official Citi employees. Instead, toward the end of the assignment date, all were dismissed (and informed not by our superiors at Citi, but by temp agency employees) without warning or notice, because the positions were being eliminated. What’s worse, I checked online the following day and the temp agency has posted more identical job listings for a new group of analysts. Seems like the positions were not eliminated after all.

    No vacation time, no benefits, not treated well.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO gets tens of millions of dollars in bonuses, yet the company can't afford to provide benefits to employees working more than 40 hours per week?
