    I worked at Citi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generally decent starting salaries. Much-needed diversity initiatives are active.

    Cons

    Intensely bureaucratic, nearly impossible to get anything done. Assurances made by management mean very little, and can and do change. Improvement tasks and projects are generally tick-box exercises to use as proof for bonuses, rather than any real intention to improve process. Toxic work environment - cliques and gossip are the norm. Compensation process pits teammates against one another on a local, regional, and global level. Despite active and vocal diversity initiatives, open sexism acknowledged and accepted by management. Suicide 'jokes' a firm part of the department 'banter'. Concerns about consistently excessive stress levels dismissed as 'normal' for tech/production support. Extremely high turnover. This puts undue pressure on the people who choose to stay - teams are understaffed and stretched to breaking point in many instances. Despite vocal mental health initiatives, your wellbeing is not considered a priority. No work-life balance. Leaving on-time is frowned upon, and you won't be thanked for working late.
