      Pros

      Great benefits, competitive pay, nice facilities, great name to be on your resume as long as people don't confuse City National Bank with Citi Bank.

      Cons

      Your experience is very strongly dependent on your manager. Some managers are fantastic, and others are stuck in the past in terms of leadership style.

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Overall seems like a good company with people who generally enjoy being there

      Cons

      This is the worst IT organization I have been a part of in 10+ years. - Fragmented tech stack - Lack of ownership - Lack of subject matter experts - High turnover - Terrible middle management - Poor organization communication - SAFe - Bureaucratic knowledge sharing restriction Communication is a huge problem with different teams not interacting with each other. This seems to have resulted in huge technology drift, every development group does things completely differently, nobody can describe the software development life cycle because it was so fragmented. This creates huge barriers to being productive because working on any piece of software means you have to learn an entirely new tech stack and it makes things worse tracking down the person who owns the software or can explain it is a fool’s errand. If you are looking for a collaborative environment to learn and grow as a developer this is not the company for you. If you don’t mind teaching yourself new technologies every other day just to have that knowledge rendered obsolete in a week when another team informs you what you are working on is no longer needed this might be the place for you.
