    I have been working at Citi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money- if you dont mind being a slave; u will get a good price for yourself.
    Work from home- depends on your managers approval.
    Senior management is very transparent.

    Cons

    HR Lacks IQ and is very slow in responding, sometimes they wont bother to reply to your email unless you escalate them.
    Not enough 4 wheeler parking, its reserved only for seniors.
    Bays, desks and even chairs are of pathetic quality. Expect back pain within a month.
    Transport is pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve HR hiring process. I can understand that each process has to go through a lot of approvals, but this contradicts the situation in which you need immediate resources.
    The HR who interact with candidates in Pune are vendors. This itself explain their inability to handle things efficiently. Please take measures to improve HR reps who are from vendor. I have had a couple of guys who did not join Citi just because of miscommunication or disappointment from the face of the organisation (hr hiring rep) being LAME and sub standard.
