What people are saying about Citi
The Work-Life Bowl
10 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.

excellent environment to get the feel of business and the way all the divisions of a bank work together
Need to mitigate office politics

It was a job that I used to fund my education and I moved on and never worked for anyone again.
It was the worst environment and culture ever... and I worked at Wells Fargo. I would either cry or scream my entire ride home from work. I have never had that from a job before... and thankfully never again.3

Nothing good about these working conditions
Long hours 19 hours a day Poor and rude management No training Job description is very difficult to the interview process No introductions to new staff members of made feel welcome Below par salary for graduates Location is a nightmare to get to and no parking unless picked in lottery system Overall toxic work environment that will make you evaluate the industry you are in and will not take responsibility for this8

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.

The company has great benefits, fitness center. Some locations have a daycare service. The company has gone to a more at home work environment which is a great advantage to families.
Although the company uses a targeted selection process in their hiring practices. It is very difficult to move up in the company individuals are hand picked for positions. The amount of work assigned is not compensated appropriately.1

There are some delightful people working there. Some good talent.
Some leadership demonstrates very unprofessional behavior and nothing done about it even when revealed to senior leadership. Very challenging work environment if you are one who likes to work and get things done.1

The Cafeteria has friendly employees.
Where to start. I was lied to in my interview about training and work schedule. I was promised training in my job function, never received any. I was assigned work right away with no information on how to do it and publicly shamed in front of my team when it was incorrect. Interview advised that employees are off before 7pm. Left before 7pm perhaps once a month, constantly worked weekends. 200 analysts in a room without windows, no natural light at all. It was like working underground for 10-12 hours at a time. Supervisors often do not know how to do the work themselves, they just sit back and criticize while their employees drown. The unprofessionalism in interpersonal communication really took me back. I have worked in other financial institutions and never had a supervisor cuss at me like a child before working here. Citi needs to look into this location. It's a very depressing environment to work in and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.3

Clear policies and systems in place since its a global bank. Good managers and teammates.
Stressful work environment depending on the team you'll join especially if there's lots of new migrated accounts.

Fun work space with plenty of opportunities for professional growth . several activities around the year for learning latest technologies which leads to work in an environment stress free
condescending manager who micromanages constantly

The other benefits are better than most other foreign banks. The work environment is pleasant and you get support for most of the projects you undertake.
Work hours can be demanding normally working more than 11 hours a day. When an employee leaves the company normally opts to assign the responsibilities abandoned instead of adding the headcount. This sometimes leaves some units overstretched in terms of workload.1
