    I worked at Citi as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was doing a 4 month internship in citibank mississauga office. I like the culture there. My manager, which is also the team lead, is an efficient and enthusiastic man.

    Cons

    Company is big with policies as all other big companies do. non-disclosure agreements needs to be signed even as a developer.

    I have been working at Citi

    Pros

    I work part time, 20 hours a week, really relaxed environment, management will bend over backwards to accommodate my school schedule. They have been fantastic to me over the years, excellent benefits through Manulife, unbeatable for part-time work and flexibility.

    Cons

    Monotonous job, negatively toned conversations with clients, its like you start on the wrong foot with every conversation, takes a lot of patience and the ability to be able to handle these clients and turn them into a positive conversation and relationship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for personal growth in part-time positions is absolutely necessary. As a collector that routinely does full DCF analysis and values companies at school, I'd really appreciate the opportunity to offer more value to the company.

    I worked at Citi full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay. Flexible benefits and insurance plans, as long as you take the time to read the package thoroughly.

    Cons

    Inconsistent messages and expectations from multiple levels of management. Remote access available but rarely rarely approved to use. Workload problems usually have to balloon before management takes action and approves overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually have regular employee engagement meetings and take action. Usually engagement meetings resulted in no action like 90 percent of the time.
