I have been working at Citi full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great training, supportive community, good opportunities to move around within the firm, international exposure. Citi's a great place to start your career and learn the basics for how to do business as an international financial services firm.

Cons

Professional development opportunities can be limited, it can be easy to get lost in such a large firm. Promotions can be very political so it's easy to get stuck in a particular role without having too much ability to propel your career forward. Compensation is okay.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity for largest scale challenges and responsibilities. Diversity even at very senior levels.

    Cons

    Global work = global hours. Big league politics - if you don't regularly take credit for your work, someone else will. No brand culture.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. I hate to say it, but that's about it.

    Cons

    Typically poor management, including severe office politics and under qualified management teams. It would be one thing if people were capable of getting better, but typically management makes the same mistakes over and over. Strategies change very often, with dictates from NY that fail to drive beneficial status, while they refuse to listen to people who know what they are talking about. Management even outright lied in a town hall saying Citigroup had "no significant part in the mortgage security crash" in 2008. Really?

    Advice to Management

    Dump your employee review process. Forcing people into a bell curve doesn't make sense. Managers should be able to make honest reviews of their employees and not be forced into giving undeserved (or unearned) ratings. Listen to people, don't dictate. Figure out who Citigroup is and build it. Don't be everything and fail to accomplish anything.
