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

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

Pros

When 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.

Cons

During 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Citi full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Health benefits are above most. Live well at Citi is an excellent program. Child care on premises. Employee cafeteria has a lot of choices for lunch, although quite expensive.

    Cons

    Lack of direction. Extreme favoritism. Everyone is jockeying for "postion". Management talks down and degrading to employees. Pay is not the best on the street. Left this company for very greener pastures including salary! Turnover is rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not sure who the manager of the hour is to give advice. Who is in charge today? No one seems to know!!! Some managers come from another department to try and tell you what to do, when they have no concept of the position or the duties.
