    I worked at Citibank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    salary, benefits,facilities and easy to commute

    Cons

    bad environment , without training, Managers that dont know the process that they are dealing with. Also I never saw in my life a messy place like that. If you dont ask about who is who nobody will tell you. Useless meetings and managers stock in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your team process and start understanding that we are in 2017

    I worked at Citibank full-time

    Pros

    It is a very large company with very incoherent lines of responsibility so you can get away with doing very little, if you like that.

    Cons

    American employees seem to run the show, regardless of experience or knowledge. Constant structural changes results in loss of valuable knowledge with little or no contingencies in place.

    Advice to Management

    The best employees are usually already present within teams and should not be overlooked for more senior roles in place of US counterparts. For some reason I worked with many great employees that were continually overlooked.

    I worked at Citibank (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It had an international atmosphere, and it was a good place to work in.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, lots of the Senior Managers had been there for over 20 years, and had no degrees, experience, or were polished enough to work in a banking enviroment. They could've been working down at Billinsgate for all we knew, such was their professionalism and banking expertise.

    HR was awful, internal movement was next to nil. One would have to know someone within the department you'd be applying for, so a manager would ask HR for CVs received for that role. Absolute shambles, completely against the image they're trying to portray themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Last I'd heard was that all the jobs apart from the trading floor were going to Ireland...

    Faster changes are necessary in order to retain talent
