I worked at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Citi was always striving to be the best company possible. There are opportunities available if you were willing to move to that location. There are many online training tools available - mainly for the banking employees.

Cons

I did not see a raise or bonus for the past three years. I believe I hit my glass ceiling. My current position was an important position - but the company is trying to cut back 11,000 jobs as per their "Redundancy" effort. I was a victim of Redundancy at Citi. I understand it was purely a business decision and that Citi saved money by releasing me - so - don't make too much money or you may be next on the list. Also, Citi has a tuition reimbursement initiative - but Citi does not pay for any professional computer related certifications. You will have to earn any certifications using your own dime. That's just business - right?

Advice to Management

You should have a "chat" with employees to determine what skill sets they hold before you send those employees out the door. I am certain you "throw away" many talented people - but that is just business - right?

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Was a great place to work with some really great talent, which they for the most part laid off and outsourced.

    Cons

    No raises and no bonuses, unless you're upper management. Outsourcing the majority of technology to India and moving all of operations to texas and hiring consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the outsourcing to india, create more jobs in the US.
