Want to Review a Different Company?
of 5 stars
You are surrounded by tons of resources if you can get access, the company is so huge you are bound to have some subject matter experts nearby who will help you. You start out with a good amount of vacation days.
There is not much room for advancement after one promotion, most the managers only exist to complain and they never do anything managerial. That statement excludes the IB managers and Consulting Managers, they are significantly more competent individuals.
Be careful what part of Citi you end up in, if the office is not located in a financial Mecca or a commodities hub then you will probably get stuck in an unhappy position.

Work from home, general benefits are good. 8% company match in 401k at the end of the year
If your manager is bad your life will be horrible. Micro management everywhere
Make yourself the best candidate by matching what they want. If you don't match 100% low chance of an interview.
of 5 stars
Citi has a great reputation, and the hours are very reasonable.
There are so many people working there that upward growth prospects (career wise) are limited.
Try to find out about growth prospects of the role and, if limited, about whether the manager would encourage lateral or diagonal moves within the organization.
Big bank with structured training program and competitive salary versus the street.
Culture was not always overly positive. Some people seemed to be counting days to move elsewhere. Hours also could be tough, but that's to be expected.
On campus interviewing is the best way to go if you seeking an internship and attend a school they come to. Otherwise, networking is the only other way.
Good work life balance. Each team /dpt. Has different mechanic and structure. I would not say there is a plain corporate culture
None that I know. I very one year here and I have a good experience
Be very well prepared for the position you are applyng for. Make aure you know why you feel are the right candidate and be able to articulate during interview.
1. Good work/life balance2. Best bank in terms of global reach3. Good leadership at the C-level
1. Too many layers of management- this is a known problem and is being addressed (though slowly)2. Attrition is high globally- it is very likely you'll work with different people very often due to this3. Like all companies, promotion process can get very political
Meet somebody or reach out to somebody who works at Citi- they have a very good referral process
Its global and provide you option of moving internally to different products and teams.
Its quite bureaucratic and slow. There is a high possibility of you getting lost even if you are star performer.
The best way to get in is through campus recruitment or employee referral. Its wise to consult the level with the HR/employee as titles are often misleading.
