I worked at Citi full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Benefits - company matched up to 4%. Good health benefits and a gym in the facility that I used everyday. Training was decent and coaching was valuable. Remote capability and worked from home 3 days a week.

Cons

Slow at progress (disadvantage of being a large company) and might be overlooked if you don't volunteer yourself for special projects often and work from home (invisible).

Advice to Management

More communication over new procedure changes and how that affects your job.

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

    Pros

    Vacation, benefits, work life balance, remote work, great for moms.
     If you're offered a position with Citi make sure you negotiate and ask for more money or they will give you the base, most jobs have a huge range 20-30k to work with and they will offer you the least. Negotiate, Negotiate!!!!

    Cons

    Compensation is below average,only way to make more money is to leave Citi and come back. It's a running joke... everyone leaves and comes back...but they come back making 20k more.
    Lucky to get a 3% yearly increase. You're treated as person in a seat not as a loyal employee. Turnover is high only because of the pay. I was offered 25k more doing the same job elsewhere.
    Don't expect a bonus, bonus' are given based on mgr discretion, they are given an amount and based on how they want to give it out... hope you're buddy buddy with them or you won't see anything, many years was told they didn't have enough in the budget to give everyone raises, some people in the group were given 10% others nothing.
    Management is very poor, you get promoted only if you apply for a higher level. Citi never promotes by rewarding for performance. Example- to go from a JR to Sr level someone must leave the department and the position must be applied for. Never granted based on great work.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to work on finding a balance for their team. Favoritism is very common and they only way to get anywhere or anything is being friends with managment.
    Management won't fight for their employees... common excuse "It's out of my hands...It's an HR decision"
    I hated seeing great talent leaving Citi because of pay or unfair evaluations. Just because in an evaluation it states where there is room for improvement, does not mean you should make something up just because you're suppose to put something. You play with peoples careers.
