Pros

International growth. Citi has the tools to do business internationaly and is not taking advantage of all the resources it has. fewer chiefs and more peope executing and getting things done. Focus on our advantages and use them to grow our busienss. Citi has international clients in US and is not taping into this vast resource. Could grow the company exponencialy

Cons

Lack of execution. Management needs to focus on getting things done fixing systems so that they all talk to each other. (Technology speaking) fewer chiefs and more peope executing and getting things done. Focus on our advantages and use them to grow our busienss. Citi has international clients in US and is not taping into this vast resource. Could grow the company exponencialy

    Pros

    CitiGroup had an interesting call center that has the best facility amongst similar jobs. The benefits package is excellent but balances out with the low pay rate. The work life balance is great as a competent individual can complete his weekly work load in 40 hours or less. The Schedule is also great if you are fortunate to get a team with a morning schedule. Overall it was fun while it lasted but I could not do it for more. (total stay 1.1yrs)

    Cons

    There is always politics but i have never seen a place that had politics similar to a High School. Not to mention senior management treated everyone below as dumb high school students. I was a top performer for most of my stay there with limited effort. I was always told that performance gets you what you want, however at the end it was more determined on how much ass you can lick by the end of the day. To conclude i don't lick ass so I am in a better place now :-)

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should take feedback and use it productively


  2. "Too political"

    Pros

    Exposure to wide varieties of technologies. Nice people. Opportunities to hone your political skills. Lots of diversity, lots of different kinds of people to meet. You get to interact with a vast array of people.

    Cons

    Too much politics. Real workers who want to just do their job are not allowed to work sincerly. ITs a political jungle in there. Extremely vertical groups, each group only does their thing, and nothing else. ITs like wearing blinders to work. There is no sharing of data/information between groups, and there is a lot of back stabbing and back biting.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the fiefdoms, and political BS and lets work together to fix the serious issues. Kill the big bonuses for the fat cats.
