    lots of knowledge gained in Citi

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosyou 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

    ConsAt 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.

    Culture that allows self-motivated to thrive. Positive, not cut-throat.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPerform well and you will be recognized and encouraged. Learn how to weave your way through the systems and the knowledge will become invaluable as you grow. Pay scale on the high side in comparison to other retail banks BUT you will work very hard for the extra $$ - staffing is very lean within the branch network and you will be expected to do more than you would with the same title in another bank. Client facing staff is knowledgeable and cares deeply about clients.

    ConsCertain area directors and branch managers create negative microcosms within a larger corporate structure that is more positive. Fiefdoms exist where leadership is reactionary and negative and not even all that competent. However, it is possible to navigate the tricky waters and succeed despite this. Move to a different branch or line of business and you can find excellent leadership and be valued. Help line is not consistently helpful, can take a very long time to resolve issues, especially IT.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline systems to talk to one another. Make it more simple to accommodate customer needs and requests without inputing data in multiple systems/data bases; such as: promotions, programs, applications and requests from customers with cross business relationships. (If cards has the client's info, share it with retail, if a private bank or global executive client has a simple account opening request, make it possible to accommodate, allow online access for a client's multiple debit cards, this list could go on and on...)

    Great internship. I learned a lot about the corperate world.

    Summer Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsThey are obviously frendly, they wouldnt have gotten to where they among the rankings if they werent.
    The best part about working here is that they are doing their best to make sure that their interns do not feel underutilized.

    ConsThere really arent any for the interns that you find anywhere else, you have to learn a lot when you get here (software they use), but all and all its worth it.
    You MUST dress business casual (slacks and a button down, no clue what the equivalent is for a girl)

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust because someone is slightly unprofessional in the tech department doesnt mean they arent a good fit. 99% of other companies arent formal at all. I think we should be allowed to dress down a little

    Great coworkers, smart management

    Computer Programmer (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsFlexible schedule possible,good health benefits overall

    ConsNo 401k match,no pension,too many reorgs and consequently loss of talent and stock value.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you do not treat employees fairly,stock will be affected,this is butterfly effect. Taking away pension,even cancellation of Cristmas party, do not help customer satisfaction either.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
