Associate with the Corporate & Investment Bank based primarily in New York City at 388 Greenwich

Investment Banking Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

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

ProsWhen I started in 1998 the pay was very competitive for investment banking associates. The caliber of professionals working around you are top shelf. Substantial resources at your disposal to perform your job. Highest caliber clients. Truly global universal bank provides geographic flexibility. Substantial institutional knowledge. Outstanding training program for those joining at the entry level. Extremely interesting work.

ConsDuring my tenure managers were not good at managing subordinates. Extremely long hours. Working as a banker with Citi as an I banker was a life style decision. Break down of compensation causes employees to assume substantial risk for the year. Its up or out and very competitive. Can be a political mine field to stay at firm.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore transparency to junior leaders from senior management. Better incentivize management in developing junior leaders. Incorporate the principal perspective in dealing with clients.

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