I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

1) Org morale has improved over the past couple of years
2) Management communication is clearly more positive
3) Lots of focus on culture and cohesiveness nowadays but still long ways to go

Cons

1) Lots of variation in culture and compensation across groups
2) Lots of layoffs happen intermittently, albeit in small numbers (but I guess that's just the nature and the state of Investment banking in general)

Advice to Management

There's clearly an opportunity to reduce focus on unimportant / non-core groups and activities -- but that would require a lot political will ....

    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive pay, but could be better. Folks are talented, but nepotism needs to be squashed.

    Cons

    A lot of managers who move up because others quit, not because they deserve the role. Too top heavy, too many MDs and Directors who don't warrant the title in the post 2008 financial industry.

    Advice to Management

    Create a meritocracy, force better cross sell between businesses. Too busy fighting internally to look at big picture


  2. "Technology continues to suffer"

    Think before you act and develop a plan, use it
