    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You are in a banking domain

    Cons

    Life is miserable if you do not have good network.

    They recruit for a role of C13 and congratulate you with an offer. Later you see that they offer you a C12.

    There is no drive for internal employees. The internal employees will work more number of years to see that someone lesser able with less experience are hired at a more greater pay.

    If you have left the job at this company and you have shared your mobile number then they will call and haunt you and bug you with (how to do this and how to do that).
    People leave and contractors are hired. Contractors leave and new bunch of contractors are hired.

    It is funny to know that few contractors are working for more than 3 years. The amount of money spent on a contractor is 3-4 times paid to a citi employee yet neither citi employee is given a hike nor the contractor is made permanent.

    Similar projects are repeated in the project / product life cycle. An entire project gets delivered in say Java. Later the same would get delivered in .NET. (The reasons given are funny like improved look and feel or new features)

    I have seen projects where there are 4-6 managers and 2-3 developers working on a project. Each manager has a different meeting scheduled for each developer. The developer has no time to develop and busy in meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Its useless to give advice as it would back fire on you. (Its no good to write against anyone in appraisal reviews as they would get to know who has written what)
