    I worked at Citi full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people to work for and around, I came to work every day so I never had any issues with time off requests. Citi is a diverse company. They are fair in decision making. Compensation was very beneficial.

    Cons

    Some Managers play favoritism but that is any business I have found

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always have an open door policy

    I have been working at Citi full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance
    Good benefits (onsite amenities could be better)
    Relatively fast moving
    Diverse
    Great locations/buildings (388 Greenwich in NYC looks awesome inside/out)

    Cons

    The technology is behind. The CTO/CIO needs to embrace new technology fast. They should provide super fast development machines, access to cutting edge technology trainings and drive the business to adopt new technology. The user interface of most applications are outdated. They really need to spend money on how customers are using their applications and change the UI design of every single application.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Instead of doing same old and holding the fort, get out and think differently.
    2) You should also force rotate people and put them in different teams, so employees will learn how Citi as a whole works.
    3) Learn from Google/Facebook on how to treat employees by bringing better onsite amenities. Spend some money on employees instead of losing in Forex market.
    4) Put technology in center piece of everything you do.
    5) Hire really smart people and not just average people whose goals are to pay mortgage and tuition for their kids.
