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

    I have been working at Citi full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

  8. "Not bad company"

    4.0
    Current Employee - Tech Lead in Toronto, ON

    I have been working at Citi full-time

    Pros

    Salary seems a bit above average from Mississauga standby

    Cons

    Due to the location, it has made hiring and retention rather difficult. It is a valid reason for people to prefer to work downtown as opposed to this location.

    Some coworkers are extremely talented, they can teach you a lot - but you got to earn their attention

    Cons

    A lot of legacy technology, too much time is wasted on it Huge cultural and knowledge gaps between offices

    Current Employee - Analyst in Toronto, ON

    I have been working at Citi full-time
