    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.

    I worked at Citi full-time

    Pros

    Working twice your contracted hours help you learn the role quicker. It's easier to understand how the financial crash happened after working there. Some good people worked there.

    Cons

    Poor pay, haphazard management. Financial regulations were seen as a nuisance to get around and it was more important to be seen to be working than actually achieving anything of note.

    Advice to Management

    Targets and bonuses lead to poor behaviour. Try and manage people rather than spreadsheets. It is not a factory.

    I like work for Citigroup as it gives me the possibility to work from home when needed and management is supportive.

    N/A
