I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Being such a large company with a strong global presence there are many lateral movement opportunities. Movement is allowed after you've been in a role for about 18 months. There are many opportunities to network within the company and move laterally.

Cons

In almost every role you'll have to manage your manager and your day-to-day work will be secondary. Promotions within your current role or team is extremely rare. One has to move to another team to move up a level or leave the company for a few years and come back at a more senior position. Although attempts have been made to "flatten" the management structure bureaucracy still exists.

Advice to Management

There's needs to be a clear and transparent structure on how employees are rated and compensated. Implement easier and faster ways for execution. Invest in technolog and infrastructure.

    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large organization that supports career mobility. Increasing focus on consolidation and eliminating redundant technology, which means there are many new projects using the latest technologies.

    Cons

    Communication of strategy is ineffective, so teams within the same functional groups don't even know what each other are doing. No common culture. Compensation is not competitive with peer group, especially for those who have been with the firm since the start of the depression.

    Advice to Management

    Define and communicate the corporate culture, and start paying some attention to compensation.


  2. "Fast paced, high stress"
