Pros

5 years ago I could list many good reasons to work for Citi, can think of any at the moment. Job security and knowing if you work hard you will be taken care of is not the case any more.

Cons

Citi used to be a firm where you knew your future was safe. Now if management changes in New York, all that you worked for could go down the drain. Not good when you are trying to retain talent.

Advice to Management

Citi is shaped like an upside triangle. Senior Management needs to stop taking blind unrealistic measures. Listen to the rank and file and quit depending on out side firms that pull the wool over their eyes. Citi has some really good employees with little or no hope in regards to their future and security. Citi was built by the hard work and sweat of many of the common people. The firm is still suffering from the problems of the 2008 bubble being burst. Stop hiring outsourced management firms that promise huge savings i.e., 30 million annually. Let your in house team manage to a number. That worked for many years!

    Pros

    Big company, can move around after a year and they seem to prefer internal candidates

    Cons

    BIG company, multiple people doing the same job, the work you do goes unused, the work you do is unnecessary, Its one big mess.

    Plus, the medical benefits are the worst, 401K matching after a year, bonuses are awful.
