    Cons

    No personal Development
    Aggressive Banking Culture
    People are overloaded with work or they have nothing to do.
    You have to be in good books of manager and will get you everything even if you don't work.
    Manager is always cry about budget cuts in calls.
    HR is worst part of Citi.

    I worked at Citi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work culture is good
    Pay and benefits are good and they pay well above Market level
    Work is good and best thing is they encourage innovation

    Cons

    Main problem: You should be cautious to save your reputation once you loose it you will be ignored, so will be your growth. Some ppl involve in bad politics for the same. I mean a 3 can become 1 performance wise but perception wise he will be 3 because of his reputation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not depend on perception. Please don't think bad performer is always bad and vice versa. People can improve, and improve to a great extent that is beyond your imagination.

    Pros

    Massive scale on which your work could be used. Challenging problems to work on.

    Cons

    Compensation is average if not worse. Office politics is a huge problem. Transparency needed in movement and promotions as the office is rife with rumors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are on the right path, selling off non-performing businesses. Incredibly bureaucratic organization that needs to become more flexible in terms of technology.
