    Pros

    you can learn a lot in citi. It has presence in 100+ countries and you can enrich your knowledge & experience. Very few banks have a global reach like Citi

    Cons

    At present, Citi is in cost cutting mode and has reduced drastically its budget. So always there is a crunch about funding and there is no major investment spend for new projects apart from regulatory ones.
