I have been working at Citi full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Receptive culture, global outlook and supports employees for growth and personal goals.

Cons

Less visibility for middle management for accountability or ownership of tasks for deliverable.
Heavy dependency on outsourced partners worldwide with minimal control in many areas and over spending on projects.

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good perks, some opportunity to work from home. The benefits weren't impressive but are typically so.

    Cons

    There's no avoiding having some bureaucracy in a 200 year old bank with almost a quarter million employees. Their 401K investors lost money, which looks terrible considering I work in equities. The hours were whatever management wanted you to work (late, weekends), but were forgiving if you had to leave during the day.

    Advice to Management

    TBTF will not last forever. Do something about it before regulation catches up. Top down management is murdering productivity, morale, and efficiency, but good luck convincing a wanna-be-central-bank that authoritarianism is bad.

    "Exactly what you would expect from a big bank"

    Pros

    As a multi-national firm, Citi offers a wealth of opportunities to work in many different locations or interest areas. You will find talented people throughout the company and there is a well-defined track into upper management.

    Cons

    As in any large organization, Citi is not free of its bureaucracy. Especially during the financial crisis, the bonuses were cut, changes weren't widely accepted, and the general culture was surrounded by fear of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    You need to do a better job in safeguarding your employees. There needs to be a sense of caring and security for their employees that needs to be even more prevalent in times of hardship.
