    I worked at Citco full-time

    Pros

    Career opportunities are great. The backside is that you need to work really long in order to open it for yourself. Amazing and supporting team though. You can make mistakes if it is a learning process and you are keen to learn.

    Cons

    Terrible overtime. I don't think the salary is adequate.

    I have been working at Citco full-time

    Pros

    Some nice ppl working there, holiday entitlement decent , free juices and fruit, onsite parking , staff discounts

    Cons

    Management and hr haven't a clue what they are doing , no confidentially exists in the place as ppl are related to mgrs and get info on Others , too many jobs for relatives or friends who aren't up to the task and as a result this affects teams morale , layoffs occurring more and more regular , a lot of tension and poor morale in office

    Advice to Management

    Quit so many of you are just not up to the job and your losing good staff cos of how you treat people

    Pros

    The working environment is relaxed. Free beer.

    Cons

    People are lazy, clueless about a lot of things but know how to hide it. Poor performing people generally move up in the company. Reporting lines are deliberately kept unclear so that they can be protected from accountability. Career opportunities are limited. Strategy of the company is not shared with the workforce. Technology used is poor and outdated.

    Pros

    I joined Citco in 2015 to assist in the Set up of the Talent Acquisition Function and had the pleasure to work with some excellent professionals who listen and because Citco is a private Organisation many of the suggestions are acted on. The opportunities on offer in Citco are diverse and challenging . This Company are going places and there is ever a better time to join than now.

    Cons

    None I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Share Business Information with your teams and realize you have excellent talent that should be utilized more and offered a proper career path
