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

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people to work for and around, I came to work every day so I never had any issues with time off requests. Citi is a diverse company. They are fair in decision making. Compensation was very beneficial.

    Cons

    Some Managers play favoritism but that is any business I have found

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always have an open door policy

    Pros

    Global brand name, supportive culture

    Cons

    Huge organization, not as creative projects txt a smaller company might dare to have

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support young people and make Citi a company of the 21st century - dare to make the tech group very robust. Recruit the best of the best to your tech teams.

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

    Pros

    Global bank with opportunities to work with very diverse teams. Office cultures vary a lot by location so very hard to generalize for the firm as a whole.

    Cons

    Not to many cons I can think of. Really depends on the office or group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Development of talent from within is best way to grow firm. Still very beaurcratic in structure (promotions based on tenured service rather than performance).
