    Pros

    A lot depends upon your manager. Assuming one has a good manager, one can almost define his/her role by taking on as much responsibility as possible. If one has the aptitude and drive getting exposure to technology, quants, analytics, trading desks, etc. are all within reach. Internal mobility is supported and encouraged.

    Cons

    Because this is a very large organization, there is a need to cooperate with many peripheral groups and coordinate schedules and project plans. There are formal meetings and processes to accomplish this, but it also helps to have a good network of friends when you need favors.

    Even top performers are seeing compensation compression in these difficult economic times.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward your quality people.


  2. "Bureaucracy and poltics hamper a company with a fantastic and diverse workforce."

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    + Some of smartest and most driven middle management I've worked with.
    + An excellent and robust technological development force.
    + Their pay is pretty decent.
    + Room for professional and personal growth.

    Cons

    - Technology support is almost backward.
    - Bureaucracy turns any business decision into an event, and forces the entire company to change directions like an opium-addled, lumbering giant.
    - Office politics can spell the end of advancement opportunities if you don't get behind the "right" people.
