Location, access to online training, options for moving internally.

Cons

Networking overrated. Lack of meritocracy. Lack of management visibility. Poor decision making.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The smart people (and lifetime friendships), the business buzz, the blue chip client franchise, the well-resourced infrastructure (esp from the outside looking in), the opportunities to experience and grow as a professional.

    Cons

    The size, and the dysfunctional that is a consequence. You can be rated high-potential one year, and be made redundant the next if you happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your gender diversity stats, and the number of hi-pos you are losing, voluntarily or involuntarily. Great respect for Corbat, but I wonder if he's really got his eye on the talent drain. The company is managing by numbers and not by focusing on the lifeblood of its business -- its people!


  2. "Great company and culture"

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Interned at CIti Group Hong Kong and enjoyed every bit of it. People are willing to help and mentor.

    Cons

    I wish the intern class was more diverse.
