I worked at Citi full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great resume builder, lots of opportunity to grow. Smart people. Excellent benefits and 401k overall.

Cons

Still lots of silos across company despite years of "One Citi" efforts. Certainly has the bureaucracy one would expect at an organization of 300k employees. Constant expense pressure, restructuring, and threat of lay-offs

Advice to Management

I believe the company is on the right track, and needs to stick with the plan despite the pain and external market pressure.

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

    Pros

    Good learning and good carrier opportunities, very dynamic place. Compensation is in line with other i-banks.

    Cons

    Future is highly uncertain, upper management does not have any clear plan for grow. High turnover on business side. Best traders and sales don't stay due to management and lack of incentives.

    "Decent environment in the investment bank, but a lot of dead wood"

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

    Pros

    good benefits ( health care options, 401k match, etc)
    great global reach. citi has a footprint in nearly every country.
     relatively stable compared to other investment banks

    Cons

    a lot of senior management comes from the Salomon/CitiCorp days, and are very far behind the times. Many wind up being simply cheerleaders or, worse, simply bad managers. Unfortunately, being on great terms with these dinosaurs is key for moving up

    Advice to Management

    shake up the senior management in the investment bank.
     focus less on single year pnl for comp. Traders greatest specialty is tweaking their books.
     do a better job in determining what a certain seat should generate. Too many untalented people in seats where it is easy to do well
