    Former Employee - Transaction Banking in London, England

    I worked at Citi as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Good at making it look like they are the bees knees

    Cons

    All is not what it seems, they take people on who are FoaFoaF (Friend of a Friend of a Friend) and from their outsourced partners in India, and pay them peanuts and if you are not of the same background you are going nowhere! They just expect you to take all the crap they throw at you and give you a crappy Citi pre paid card with £50 on it for Xmas bonus BOLLOX!
