very good.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Bangalore

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

ProsSalaries are good, Office Culture one of the better ones, good flexibility of work including no in and out times etc.

ConsVery aggressive organization, work is not as diversified as consultancies, low on travelling - so not good for people who look for that.

Advice to Senior ManagementShould be a more meritocratic organization - neutral teams should be set up to gauge excellence at all levels so that rewards are less based on opinions and perceptions of a few people alone.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

OKAY Not Bad

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Citi for more than 3 years

ProsGood Pay, Nice Bonus and Excellent Work

ConsWork Life balance not good. Recognition is based on perception rather than perrformance

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease concentrate on recognition. Senior Management seldom knows what is happening at ground level. Rewards are based upon who talks rather who works.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Think 10 times before joining this keep it as last option don't go with package & position they offering.

Manager (Former Employee)
Pune

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

Pros1.no pros. ok perks 50 thousand more than what you will get by other offer.
2. no training, worst induction program i ever seen.
3.infrastructure is good but the machines are worst only 60 Gb hard disk that includes your os, n other software within month you run out of space.
4. work from home

Cons1. configuring your machine environment takes 2 months no help from others.
2. sometimes you need to wait almost 2 months to get required software's n managers keep asking for deliveries.
3. The onsite counter part in no mood to help in KT feels job insecurity.
4. Majorly support work don't join such company who tells lies before joining n then change stance.
5. Fake positions- vice president & presidents do coding here lol :P
6. work from home is not facility its burden you will or allow to use only when you working out of office hours.
7. No leave in cash or transfer of leaves to next year.
8. hard work in terms sitting in office u r good in managers book if u sit 12 hours in company
   though you have no work.
9. No intra day trading allowed by employee for others also you need to take approval of your manager.

Advice to Senior Management1. Look the process for machine setups & hardware
2. Train managers to differentiate between smart work n hard work.
3. Don't tell people you having development work n then assign them to support work

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
