    I have been working at Citi

    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 have been working at Citi full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay and most branches in my had rotating saturdays so you don't have to work every weekend. Work hours are great to. i was never there past 6:30pm.

    Cons

    The hiring process takes a long time. My branch was short 2 tellers for almost a full year so the work load was a little overwhelming at times.

    I have been working at Citi as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The 10 week summer internship program at Citi is one of a kind. The networking, leadership exposure and friendly environment makes Citi a rewarding company to work for.

    Cons

    Large company. A lot of employees with many small teams/groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction/face time with interns during the summer would of made it a better experience.
