What people are saying about Citi
The Work-Life Bowl
20 days ago
Looking for opinion on whether one should represent a short stint on a resume. I’d spent 32 years at a large bank before being laid off in early 2018. Got back into the market in late 2018, then moved again eight months later to Citi. This week I fell victim to the ‘Transformation’ despite being highly regarded. Question I am mulling over is should I include that eight month stint or not? Thinking I should just leave it off, but wondering if some background check may raise questions?

If there are any C2C contracting positions open that you may be aware of, appreciate the insight. Have worked with a Big4 firm in financial regulatory space dealing with consent order and now at Citi doing the same. But not satisfied with moving to industry and looking for a move

Those layoffs are happening. It just happened to me. They told me today was my last. I get 8 weeks severance. I get all my vacation I haven't taken. For me this is a blessing in disguise. I disliked my supervisor and team. Also hated the job. So long Citi.

- potential for career development - great staff
- micromanaged - unrealistic goals - compensation is terrible if promoted from within - poor work/life balance (expect you to work all day every day but not have overtime)

The pay is good and the facilties we are provided with are also good enough.
The work life balance is poor and not satisfactory it takes sometime to get accustomed to it.Citi Response8y
Thank you for your review. Providing our employees with work life balance is a priority at Citi. We understand that balancing both a professional career and making room for personal needs is demanding so we offer flexible work arrangement opportunities for our teams. We recommend having an open conversation with your manager to determine an arrangement that works best for you.

Great opportunity to work in a global, large scale and impactful bank. Lots of smart, driven people and enterprise level systems.
Work life balance was a challenge to manage due to the amount of work and demanding production environment. Very top down environment where decisions made did not always seem to 'make sense' for the business units.

Investment banking pays well, opportunity to learn a lot about corporate finance in a short period of time
Not possible to be good at the job and have much / if any work life balance1

Able to build up the career steps and 100 percent self motivated environment. Get chance to learn alot while working on a real world problem.
Nothing to say about this bcz tried to convert all the cons to pros and worked towards it. Work life life balance is not easy to maintain but again it purely depends on the individual
- 3.0Mar 30, 2021Vice PresidentCurrent EmployeeBelfast, Northern Ireland
Variety of work, global presence, working with good people. Opportunities to rotate and move to new roles internally. Good additional benefits - annual bonus, pension, BUPA private health
Lip service to work / life balance and promoting females to senior positions in certain teams. No financial support or equipment provided to work from home during covid - not even a laptop. Recruitment process both externally and internally can be painfully long1
- 4.0Jan 1, 2019MaharastraCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsPune
Lots of vacations in India Decent salary Flexibility to move to other projects after 18 months.
In some of the projects the deadlines are unrealistic which screws up your work life balance.

Great people and environment. Loved my whole team and I've met some really great talent there.
The pay is definitely lower than other big banks out there and upper management does not have appreciation for all of their employees. Work life balance wasn't really there and they could do a better job with encouraging professional development.

Great global brand image, good values and culture,good career growth,performance based career growth,internal opportunities for shift in career.Fairly good pay and benefits.Flexibility in terms of time though that also depends on role.
Work life balance is difficult as working hours tend to get stretched especially at month ends. Expense claiming is also tougher than elsewhere.

Great people to work with, really interesting work and clients. Constantly changing and looking to improve. Great Career opportunities for those who work hard
Work life balance is hard to find but something the company is actively working on. Huge company so often change is not as quick as it could be but the company is constantly trying to find innovative ways to improve that1
