Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Exposure to many different kinds of deals and many different business models. By being so broad based and being a primary source of credit Citi gets first look at many, many different deals.

Cons

Too political for my taste.

Advice to Management

Communicate more with employees so we can do a better job.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    You are compensated for the work you perform. If you bring in the assets and produce the revenue, you get a share of that and the Company pays the overhead for extensive state-of-the-art platforms and your office. The benefits package, including retirement options, are the best.

    Cons

    Competition is keen for new clients and finding them in the current market environment can be very difficult. Also, each branch has a different personality based mostly on the Branch Office Manager (BOM). So, pick your manager carefully. Pressure to perform can be intense, whether self-imposed or from management.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure Citigroup and Smith Barney have the most solid balance sheets in the industry. I would also like to see television and radio ads for Smith Barney and less for the parent Citi. Resurrect the John Houseman commercials! Everyone likes them!

    Pros

    Large organization with diverse businesses...room to grow

    Cons

    Current management is myopic and has driven the company to almost ruin. this used to be the best of the best. Most ot the best managers and creative thinkers have left.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to dream and bring fresh approaches to the table. Everything now is head down and execute.
