    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paid time off is generours
    Flexible work arrangements
    401K Matching is 100% vested immediately

    Cons

    Senior management is, in my opinion, pretty good but middle managers are aweful. Promotions are not based on merit but based on politics and on how long you have been in the company.

    There are too many people doing the same thing all through out the company...no wonder there are lay offs. There should be more.

    Workload is completely unbalanced: the good people end up working 11-12 hours a day until they get frustrated and leave because of poor compesantion and lack of professional opportunities to move up.

    Compensation is 10-15% below industry average. Bonuses are just plain ridiculous. The difference between being a top performer and an average one is $1K...why bother?

    Think twice about coming here if you have more than 1 offer to choose from...
