    Former Employee - IS COB & Controls Senior Analyst in New York, NY (US)

    I worked at Citi full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to roll-up your sleeves and work hard to solidify and expand your skillsets. From the perspective of the IS function, there is much to learn and a great deal of interaction with different technology units outside of your own group.

    Cons

    Need to be able to thrive in an extreme high pressured enviroment, juggling multiple projects plus your normal workload, and completing them successfully in a short timeframe.
