    Pros

    The way talents are treated varies dramatically from business to business. Corporate side focuses on talents a lot more than consumer side. Retail bank is not a great place to work. No career path.

    Cons

    Not a well run bank, especially consumer side. Retail bank is not a great place to work. No career path. Average salary.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus more on talent. Many employees are not motivated.

    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits of a big company: big network, some intelligent people still exist in the company. Lateral hires are possible.

    Cons

    Thick bureaucracy and red tape everywhere. Ignorant compliance staff destroys business opportunities. Company is too concerned with CYA to contribute anything to the market. Little room for growth and highly political promotion process.

    Advice to Management

    Require serious ratings system to get rid of purely political and nonperforming employees. Lots of redundancies go untouched in layoffs while smarter people who just kept their head down are laid off. Make better decisions about how you organize your staff and take the opportunities to get rid of the fat, not the talent.
