Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Nice work location, plenty of parking. I tendered my resignation as soon as I found a better job.

Cons

Poor Salary and unwilling to negotiate on better pay. Software (ESP) used to micro-manage every single minute of work including bathroom breaks. Managers were telling employees they could not have more than 2 3-minute bathroom breaks on an 8-hour shift. Mind you the bathrooms were at the ends of the building and it was a large massive room with hundreds of cubicles. Many employees with management titles but zero management skills. Management is unreliable and plays favoritism.

Advice to Management

There is no need to micro-manage employees with unreliable software to increase productivity.

    I worked at Citi as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I learned a lot interning at Citigroup. Given Citi is a grown company, the works given to interns are well thought.

    Cons

    As in any big company, bureaucracy is a pain.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    This company provides great flexibility. I enjoyed my tenure with them and strongly recommend this to up and coming young professionals.

    Cons

    This company makes it very difficult advancing within the firm. The management lacks structure and there are not any educational opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Return to the 360 feedback and the career counseling for a path with new employees.
