    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.

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

    Pros

    I had an excellent group of individuals that thrived working together. Great benefits.

    The bonus pool disintegrated every year as the work burden increased and salaries stagnated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT help was adequate but more was needed in a timely manner.

    Pros

    Global bank that will allow for you to grow in many different departments within the company. A good work life balance at Citi.

    Cons

    Citi has an opportunity when it comes to pay and pay increase, but in the end everyone feels that way about the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep seeking talented people who want to build a career and not just a paycheck. That is why Citi has been in the marketplace since 1912.
