Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

There were some good people, but due to downsizing a lot of people are leaving. My manager was solid.

Cons

Too many to list, no communication, internal hiring process is a joke, HR is non responsive, did I mention the downsizing? No one seems to know what is going on, or they don't care...affecting over all morale of the company.

Advice to Management

Try communicating with your employees. Don't push corporate policies that you obviously don't believe in..

    I have been working at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place to work. It will provide opportunities for a successful career to anyone with the desire and drive to do so. A vast global network with numerous opportunities, always willing to provide those that want it with assistance to grow professionally.

    Cons

    Can be political at times, but this will depend on who your boss and peers are.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the vested interest of those who have been at the institution for too long, and the people who lack the academic as well as professional background/mentality/work ethic that banks have strived to garner in the last few decades.

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - You learn a lot
    - You are given responsibility early
    - You're trained by the best
    - Meritocratic place most of the times

    Cons

    - Aggressive, cut-throat office culture
    - Hard to get time off
    - Top management couldn't care less about employees
    - A completely money driven place (all we do is for the bonus, all the actions/poor actions are measured against your expected bonus

    Advice to Management

    Focus on getting the culture right. Don't try to be a nicer Goldman Sachs as this won't work
