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

    Pros

    Great flexibility to work on different areas and projects

    Cons

    Things take forever to get approved and people who are not at the front end are not committed to produce results. Too much power is given to Risk and Compliance and they lack knowledge of the business

    Advice to Management

    Needs to take more risks in changing things and needs to effectively implement work discipline and define a clear and competitive compensation model
