    good employees are often incentivized to leave because of strict rules that limit compensation
    many different systems interacting with one another but owned by teams that do not work together, hard to figure out what's technically going on

    I have been working at Citi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot depends upon your manager. Assuming one has a good manager, one can almost define his/her role by taking on as much responsibility as possible. If one has the aptitude and drive getting exposure to technology, quants, analytics, trading desks, etc. are all within reach. Internal mobility is supported and encouraged.

    Cons

    Because this is a very large organization, there is a need to cooperate with many peripheral groups and coordinate schedules and project plans. There are formal meetings and processes to accomplish this, but it also helps to have a good network of friends when you need favors.

    Even top performers are seeing compensation compression in these difficult economic times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and reward your quality people.
