In theory this place should be good to work at, lots of options to go places and develop… but see the cons
Despite the tone from the top which is incredibly superficial, there is neither a heart here nor an ethical approach to rewarding and developing people. I’ve seen a senior leader in the org literally focus on those people who can flutter their eyelids in his direction vs their capability. If you don’t fit the bill, then you are out / bullied etc until you leave. The incompetence of those people who are placed into roles shines through, but they spend the majority of their time blaming others for their own failures. Navigate the office politics carefully as it’s too easy to end up in a role you love but hate who you are working with that they make you leave. Ultimately the busy industrious people get dumped on for others to take the glory. Seagull management.3

Not much except for the manager who hired me years ago but he's moved on since the company won't give raises that would follow high inflation.
When it comes to layoffs they hold onto their H1-B visa holders from India. Mostly because they don't have a life and all they do is work and all they want is a green card. Everyone there works well past 5pm and works on weekends too without flinching because this is what they do in india and they live to work. If you want a 9 to 5 job this is not your place because they will lay you off for not working hard enough. Also you won't be able to understand anyone's accents for years and most people can not speak gramatically correct English.3

Global work in Belfast Eager to hire graduates Decent entry level salary If you stick the course Citi will put you through your LPC
Very little proactive development aside from the "golden carrot" of LPC training Micromanagement in the extreme Big fish in a little pond of N.I Increasing demand to be in the office 3 days a week If you want a promotion you are given no guidance on what you actually need to do to progress up C-Levels Are very aggressive about having to have camera on in hybrid meetings Use c-level bands as a ceiling to your salary. Expect more from you but don't want to pay you to do so.4

A lot of smart people. Not proactive to open up and talk because tehre are so many it's hard to know who is "new" or not, but with me I was being proactive and everyone was as helpful as they could, at the very least pointing me to someone else who would know the right answer.
As nice as the people are, it's a very cold atmosphere, no social culture as such so you really have to make the efforts yourself if that's what you are looking for.1

- global presence, instantly recognisable brand - not bad pay, benefits. Hybrid working more relaxed than other banks - global mobility - Citi wants to be a different bank, unlike other big boys like GS or JP. This is mainly achieved through a personality cult of the current CEO. She is a Beyonce of Citi as some Citi employees say.
- where do we start? Heavy, cumbersome, disorganised, chaotic, all over the place bank. At times dated and does not feel like a modern 21st bank - technology does not understand the business and vice versa - Marketing machinery and the woke agenda are very heavy and proliferate in every department - many layers of middle managers - many people are disengaged, and it does not feel like a team environment - not lean and clear...lots of muddy processes and beaurocracy - people know how to play the system and do very little or work donkey hours on projects that have little value1

Good sick leave policy up to 6 months.
The culture is very toxic and workaholic, lots of bullying is present, with many people bragging that they work weekends and vacations, with no overtime pay. Management is raising eyebrows at everyone who leaves work on time. No clear assignments, and work is very dull, with outdated systems. No proper career opportunities, nothing is transparent, management is not willing to provide training for anything and then they expect miraculous results. Also managers are toxic avoiding one on ones or any complaints you raise, very prone to supporting bullying. There is a high chance you will be monitored even by MD's how many coffee breaks you take, and your work is not important at all as long as you sit behind your desk all day and pretend to work. All good benefits are silently removed, i.e. the food in the canteen was subsidised, then it stopped, there was an opportunity to work from abroad for a month- also got cancelled, and people are monitored whether they come to office three times a week. Also diversity is present just on paper, as they hire for quotas and refuse to attend or support Pride events in practice.10
