    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location in sydney CBD.

    Cons

    Resistance to change with conservative thinking.
    Typical banking culture and way of working. Nothing unique about working for Citi.
    Overly heirachical and new ideas are not fostered, a lot of 'that's the way we always do it'.

    Advice to Management

    Decisions driven by profits and only profits will not move you forward.

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

    Pros

    Recognised brand on your CV

    Cons

    Constant restructures, skeletal resources and lots of office politics make this company one to avoid. Of course in such a big company there are pockets that are the exception but generally, I didn't see or hear much that was positive.

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    1. Citi is very big and global. There are many opportunities to move internally.
    2. Citi Sydney is very big on flexible working arrangement. They encourage and there is formal work plan on the agreement. It has been great for working parents.

    Cons

    1. Too many complex and interdependent systems. Investigating issues can be time consuming.
    2. A lot of Finance functions have been offshored, it has been proven to still be a big challenge in those offshore centres especially Manila to get people with right talents.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back all finance functions back onshore of Sydney, as it is a big risk having control functions in Manila.
