    I worked at Citi full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Canadian colleagues were nice. Newer stack is being introduced, the pace is very slow however.

    Cons

    Canada location is treated as an offshore vendor, with no empowerment. The power center is in New Jersey location, with that location getting the meaty work. Weekend work is a norm , coupled with offshore vendors, working 24x7 is also a norm. Management doesn’t care about work life balance. Since the teams are highly distributed, everyone is constantly on the phone, with minimal local interaction, makes it almost feel like a telephone company.

    Pros

    Friendly people. Global corporation. Good exposure to different technologies. Automated access requests make for quick work with new hires.

    Cons

    Heavy workload with long and stressful work hours with no extra compensation. Too many layers of management and politics. Constant disagreements between Global teams. NO dedicated project managers so little to no coordination between support teams during major upgrades or initiatives. Senior management have unrealistic expectations, constantly changing their mind, and are too metrics focused resulting in many unnecessary time consuming tasks which adds to already long hours. No work life balance if you work in support.

    I worked at Citi full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good name, good work life balance, flexible hours, on-site gym, broad finical areas, above average benefits, onsite cafeteria, lots of parking spot, enriched education opportunities.

    Cons

    Politics, incompetent managers. I have no opinion about the company, I think this is more about my team. My team it’s very isolate, and seniors tend to ignore you. Manager took all my credits, and she put aside any mistakes or things make her look bad to me, even though I did not do those of those things. Move rover, she would rather go home early( around 4-4:30 everyday) instead of trading you to help the work. I thing in general, citi is good but they have some huge management issues of some department.
