    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Steady work, wfh, monitor/laptop provided, good people/camraderie, lots of food and beer back in the office. Good Christmas party. Good teams. It can feel blah and repetitive back but looking back it was actually nice in the office. Informal and relaxed compared to other places where they dress up and don’t get paid as much. Management also nice about vacation.

    Cons

    The usual long hours in finance due to last minute deliverables / client needs but it’s been better now. Pay can be higher?

    We love to receive feedback from our former employees. We recognize that the past year has been difficult to ensure that team spirit and company morale remains high. We have encouraged our business groups to hold appreciation days, online social events and ensuring that we are connecting in as frequently as possible even for a virtual coffee or quick hello.
