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

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

    Pros

    Hours and nothing else good

    Cons

    Horrid unrealistic immoral distrustful discouraging

    Advice to Management

    EXTREMELY unrealistic expectations of employees. On the brink of being the next Wells Fargo fiasco. They push you to immoral practices. A never ending circle of yelling for no reason. Should change name to Shitibank.

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

    Pros

    Great compensation pkg & benefits. Citigold is a great program & they fund it very well. You're given a quarterly budget to host client dinners/events. Highly entrepreneurial in that you own your book of business. How u choose to cultivate relationships w/your clients is entirely up to you. Love that about the company.

    Cons

    Don't expect much help from management here. They only tell u what to do & offer no coaching/mentorship. Sales culture is expected. But lack of a more fluid comp plan that encourages partnership btwn branch staff & CRMs makes for unnecessary competition w/the very folks that u need to be referring to u. Also technology SUCKS. As big of a company they are you'd expect a lot better. They still run on Windows 7 & still file paper signature cards in the branches like its 1985...RIDICULOUS.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage managers to lead & not just tell folks what to do. That happens all too often there. Implement documented coaching expectations for management to get them more invested in an associate's future. Otherwise you'll continue to lose great talent. Improve technology for sure.

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

    Pros

    -Great colleagues, excellent benefits, fantastic exposure to challenging assignments, good work/life balance (in my particular role-this is not true for all positions), and pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    -Very slow/limited growth path for those who do not come in as top managers or through management training program.
    -Every year compensation pools are decreased further so pay is stagnant (in many years, pay is flat and bonus pools are cut, so pay actually doesn't go up in line with inflation for many employees).

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to making sure hardworking underlings are promoted and given reasonable annual increases, even small ones, so employees are incentivized to continue to work hard.

    Pros

    Good work / life balance. Great comp and for the most part good direct team leaders.

    Cons

    Individuals running the U.S. CB are new to the segment and shaking things up too much. Need to get back to basics and stop micro managing and changing proven processes.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify processes. Focus on things that really matter and be clear and direct with future plans. Cut out the sneaky political agendas at the top and stop creating silos.

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

    Pros

    Citi has a great training program and clearly defined policies and procedures. It is easy to access information to learn hpw to do your job.

    Cons

    They try to downsize and cut down personnel, leaving those who stay with the burden of having to cover 2-3 positions at the time, with no increased salary.

    Advice to Management

    Let professionals do what they know how to do best. Hire enough staff to do a good job.
