      Pros

      Good training, great teams, lots of support available. 2.5 year rotation program for analysts to get a good look at different sides of the business and get exposed.

      Cons

      None so far that can't be attributed to the WFH environment due to Covid

      Pros

      - Global bank - if mobility is important to you, there's no better bank to work for. - Generally speaking, you work with some top notch talent. - Strong leadership at the top.

      Cons

      - If you aren't mobile, local opportunities can be limited and there isn't a great deal of movement within positions. Only so many roles. - With the lack of movement, this can lead to a sleepy/complacent culture within certain departments. - Even if you a top performer, the promotion cycle can take a long time and the process is often arduous. - Salaries can vary considerably and for arbitrary reasons - not clearly performance-based or even role based. Needs to be more transparency on this front. VPs in certain cases earning the same as analysts fresh out of university within the same department. - Make a point of negotiating a strong salary and position when you're onboarded to Citi. I've seen a lot of "down the line" commitments never materialize, or take far longer than communicated to do so. - Given the size of the organization, you may find yourself frustrated with the number of internal dependencies and bureaucracy to get things done. - You're at the mercy of a lot of ineffective in-house technology.
