I worked at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Being part of a big global platform and brand name

Cons

Citi has been struggling to retain best MDs / senior bankers, resulting in a bit different cultural environment

Advice to Management

Too political. Also, 360 review is not an effective way to assess performance of junior employees as a director at a different team will definitely rate his/her juniors better than other juniors.

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

    Pros

    Citi is a global diverse bank. One could make a career here learning about the many facets of finances, wholesale and retail. It can be problematic to make a change across the major business lines but within a business line, one could change area of expertise.

    Cons

    Multiple managers create confusing and conflicting priorities. No clear decision making responsibilities. The size of the bank and the regulatory oversight required makes any changes to product or customer service very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Clarification of roles and reduce the cross matrixing


  2. "This was a great company to work for. When there was work it was plentiful."
