I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good people, decent salary, decent benefits. Ability to work remotely occasionaly. On site gym, ATM, cafeteria.

Cons

Frozen salary for 2 years. Huge benefit cost increase. Overtime occasionaly required, but that is the norm for any IT job.

Advice to Management

Make your employees feel appreciated by giving them at least a cost of living wage increase each year. Frozen salaries just don't cut it. Don't take your employees for granted. They will eventually leave and all that company investment in them, training, education, etc. will be gone. No place to go for career advancement. The old boy network definitely exists at Citi.

Other Employee Reviews for Citi

  1. "like working for government"

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    learn a lot of banking business

    Cons

    Managers coming in and out. Organization structure is too complicated. Without proper restructuring, the organization needs to hire more internal communicators to smooth out operations which make the organization even more complicated. It is hard to plan for a career in an always changing environment. No clear business goal and guidelines. Oral promised incentives sometimes can not be delivered after reaching the target.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers with direct and right experience and put them in the right position. Cut down the number of middle managers. The learning process for new managers is too long and often lead the team in a direction against business. Above all, they also need to be empowered and be accountable. The lower level employees just want to get their work done rather than spending much of their time reporting to so many managers.


  2. "Lot of flexibility, decent pay, not many options to move around/career growth"
