I worked at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I had many good reasons 10 years ago...

Cons

Complete disregard for employees.
Deep employee distrust in upper management - the main reason the company is not likely to recover any time soon.
Upper management extremely out of touch with the rest of company
Human resources function like company's law firm
Citi has instilled a corporate culture where mediocrity and futility are empowered at expense of talent and new ideas.
The company has gotten too big to be managed effectively. There was a feeling that senior management had no idea my unit existed.

Advice to Management

Understand that people are the most important part of your business. They come before clients and shareholders. Without good people there is no good business. Do not say you care about your employees, show it. Your own employees do not trust you at all right now. Earn their trust by showing you care about them.

    Some supervisors talk to the employees about career mobility, but nothing that really one can do in the long run.

    do not care about employee's comfortability in the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    review their management team, some are not the best in the field.

    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gives you a chance to get started, with little education. Reps/trainers talk up opportunities within the company that don't actually exist

    Cons

    You will sell products to people you know should not and cannot buy them

    Advice to Management

    Find your moral compass and get in touch with those who work under you
