Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Large, fairly reputable (at least when I began working there) and enjoyable organization with great and talented employees

Cons

Management was extremely bureaucratically structured, and decision-making was very delayed as a result of layered oversight.

Advice to Management

A little more autonomy among certain divisions would have helped facilitate more efficient decisions and expedited information flow. Also, the HR department should have been a lot more ambitious with liaising with current employees with regard to job satisfaction and lateral opportunity.

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

    Pros

    great coworkers, people work together and support each other to reach objectives. Great training program, many opportunities to learn or improve upon skills. Good work life balance, allow flexibility in working from home.

    Cons

    no empowerment to lower management. Senior management needs to share strategy with lower management. No strategic planning visible. No support for what is needed in departments by senior management, they seem very detached to what the reality is, only care about numbers. Too much offshoring of jobs.

    Advice to Management

    empower managers to make changes and improvements. pay to retain talent.

    I worked at Citi full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and team leads, also great trainer.

    Cons

    The interview process took 6 months and the interview was misleading about what the job actually entails. This is a production type job where success is measured by how many hours you work. Everyone works about 80 hours a week in order to finish the job and they are expected to (no overtime pay). The job is very monotonous and no analytical skills are required, your job is to take screen shots and document them. They take advantage of people who cannot afford to quit and therefore the stress level is super high. People will tell you that they work 40 to 50 hours a week when you just get hired but no one does in this department, 70 to 80 it is. If you think you might need a sick day, do not take it, you will have to make up for it during the weekend, if you go on vacation you have to find someone to cover your work. If there is a holiday, your work does not decrease; therefore you will have to work those holidays or your weekends. If someone quits from your team and someone does every month, their work is now your team’s responsibility (more work, more hours). The turnover is very high and people are just unhappy. Factoring in the hours and the salary you are given, you will average about $10 an hour with your four year bachelor’s degree. They hire anyone for this job and they are playing a number’s game.

    Advice to Management

    Try to provide a life work balance environment for your employees, hire more people, and be more honest about the job and do not sugar coat it.
