Pros

Employees are always willing to help out a fellow Citibanker. Definitely promotes a team environment across business lines.

Too many levels of management/too much bureaucracy to get anything done quickly; movement or turnover n middle management results in a lack of consistency in some businesses.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits; from dental, vision, health, disability, FMLA, and HSA

    Cons

    Can be repetitive, and you sometimes do not want to deal with the customers. Hold times count against your handle time even though you have no control over that aspect.

    Current Employee - Power Trader in Houston, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    I was able to keep my lights on and feed my family with the help of some savings. The office is located at the Galleria in Houston, so when you have had enough for the day, you can walk the mall.

    Cons

    Desk head is interested in limiting traders term, and collecting trade ideas from his traders to put in his own book. Absolute dictatorship, where the leader works towards a goal of destroying individual confidence and self worth, creating an environment where the trader loses confidence in their abilities, resulting in fear of losing money. Pure definition of individual greed limiting collective goal of making money. Environment is shaped by the leader to keep himself at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the head of the snake, hire a company oriented leader that is capable of looking past his own financial wealth, for the greater good of his employees and the organization. Establish a meritocracy where Desk Head is unable to hire incompetent industry friends, and make hires to establish loyalty to the dictator.
