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

Pros

I have been with the company for less than a year and it has been the best job that I have ever had. Competitive salary, benefits, and 22 days of regular vacation time. There are also bank holidays and 6 days of unplanned time that can be used as sick days or when you just need to take off unexpectedly.

Many opportunities to change job roles within the organization after you have been in your current position for at least 1 year and have had good performance reviews.

Cons

Huge company and it is easy to get lost in the crowd.

The culture of meritocracy leads people to be very competitive as you are ranked against all of your peers.

Advice to Management

The company has way too many layers of management. Try to flatten the organization in order to give people a sense of ownership.

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

    Pros

    they have really good medical benefits, fmla, short term disability, vision, and dental, 401k matching
    worked with some great people

    Cons

    office politics
    high turnover
    very stressful environment
    employees doing the right thing are treated shabbily even though co policy is "do the right thing"
    work environment is very structured
    expect to get backstabbed by management
    watch out if you make a higher wage than entry level –they’ll find any excuse to get rid of you to save a buck (bonuses are hard to come by even if you qualify)
    they promote advancement opportunities - but not many see any
    wage is not median w/the rest of the USA or even locally

    Advice to Management

    they won't listen so why bother
