    I worked at Citi full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Global presence, excellent career opportunities, good benefits

    Cons

    Senior management gets hoodwinked by 'experts' in the audit risk and compliance world who are only 'papering the cracks' but do not provide any long-term, sustainable solution for the banks problems!

    Advice to Management

    Don't be hoodwinked by consultants. These consultants who get high-paying roles go for the quick route and sidelines the company's most valuable asset - productive and loyal long-term employees. You've seen this happen in the audit function and now you this permeate in the compliance and risk functions! These so-called new senior management experts only bring in their team and totally disregard long-serving employees!

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

    Pros

    Team willing to help and show you how to do things. Good pay.

    Cons

    Office in Canary Wharf. Be careful in choosing team as several senior are not the best to work for in terms of deals they take and in the way they lack respect to juniors. Facetime culture widespread in many teams.

    Advice to Management

    Fire half of the seniors that are obviously performing below benchmark. Choose deals more carefully. Put more efforts into building a stronger common IB culture. Move IB office to central London (this is a strong reason why people resign early in their analyst years)

    Pros

    High compensation, really smart people, one of the most international companies in the world, leadership that does care about their people, lots of opportunities to move abroad

    Cons

    It's really, really large, pretty impersonal and ultra bureaucratic, like all big banks. Lots of regulation and worry about, even for people in support functions.
