    I have been working at Citi full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary and healthcare location....that's it.

    Cons

    Stress, workload, constant overloading with work and management afraid or unwilling to push back to say a unit is at breaking point. Ridiculous pressure put on to stay after work unpaid to complete projects and bullying by salespeople. I've witnessed two other girls crying so far in 6 months.... Policies which make no sense, convoluted and illogical systems. And salespeople...the rudest overpaid human beings walking this earth. They have no idea about other people's workloads and expect the earth to be given to them, a good reason to leave.

    Advice to Management

    The whole business is a victim of its own self perpetuated importance. Grow a set, protect your current employees as there's plenty of other places to work that pay just as well with less stress. And educate people in HR policy because there's a blatant disregard by some of the bullying I've seen.

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great exposure on a global scale to a wide range of roles. Opportunity to develop understanding of an institutional bank based in Belfast.

    Cons

    Long work hours, limited work/ life balance despite big promotion on flexibility. Depending on team / departure can be operating in silo, limited ability to move into other areas or gain promotion. Planning new initiatives don’t always appear to have taken into account implementation and change management strategies.

    Advice to Management

    Do not promote work/life balance and flexible working arrangements if managers are not willing to support.
