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

Pros

flexibility in working arrangements, work at home schedules, excellent benefits and vacation

Cons

middle management fails to recognize the utterly importance of its analysts. Analysts right now are struggling with excessive work loads and analysts who can't handle it, just walk right out. Initial training for the analysts is severely lacking.

Advice to Management

invest in human capital. hire, train, and maintain high quality 'wall street' analysts. Pay them and you will retain the talent. Please, lay off the pity candy and soda handouts, they are extremely ghetto and immature and insulting. Management handed out 'payday' candy on pay day as a thank you when a generous bonus or raise would suffice. Please don't tell me that funds are not available. Have managers actually have a case load to see how analysts feel and do their jobs. Also hire from within and based on merits or work performance and not based on who talks the most.

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

    Pros

    Citi overall is a great company with CEO Michael Corbat at the helm it seems that there is more accountability and more focus on what matters. They promote alternative work strategies and offer the tools to make your job a lot easier and more efficient

    Cons

    Alternative work strategies although promoted all depends on your manager and there are way too many old school out of touch senior managers that are strongly opposed to it. Very long work hours. There are too many middle to senior managers that are not being managed and show complete disrespect to their employees and their clients. These managers are found everywhere but some departments in citi do not have this issue.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees and take their grievances more seriously. There are director level managers that are not being managed themselves and are not being held accountable when they have blatant disregard for clients and the company's reputation.

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

    Pros

    Generally good people. Comprehensive benefits

    Cons

    Compensation heavily skewed toward senior management. Pay freezes for the last 5 years are not uncommon. Generally new hire salaries are significantly more than what an existing employee gets, because they pay what they have to what the job commands on the open market. Company has excellent benefits, but is intensely stingy, no parties, no cups in the break rooms, no knick knacks, birthday recognition - nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Executive managers - continue to keep most of the booty for yourself and we'll see what happens when the market returns and people can find another job
