    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Global brand with offices all over the world

    Cons

    Very hierarchical in parts of the business and many incompetent managers. Many bankers and traders are holding on to what is left of the industry until they get laid off and collect a severance. The most talented and inspirational leaders have left and probably started their own firm or just retired. Some good people still remain, but there are many just greedy people that don't have any other industry to go to.

    Advice to Management

    Your incentives are not properly aligned. You want the culture to change, but everyone is still heavily compensated by their bonus. They have no incentive to drive change in the organization. There is no loyalty to the firm because everyone just moves to the bank who pays them the most
