There are a lot of under qualified individuals at Citi, managers dont manage

2.0 of 5 stars

March 2016 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

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.

Downers

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.

Comments

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.

Accountant

3.0 of 5 stars

November 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Work from home, general benefits are good. 8% company match in 401k at the end of the year

Downers

If your manager is bad your life will be horrible. Micro management everywhere

Comments

Make yourself the best candidate by matching what they want. If you don't match 100% low chance of an interview.

Good reputation, good hours, limited growth prospects

4.0 of 5 stars

September 2015 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Citi has a great reputation, and the hours are very reasonable.

Downers

There are so many people working there that upward growth prospects (career wise) are limited.

Comments

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.

Summer Analyst

4.0 of 5 stars

August 2015 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Big bank with structured training program and competitive salary versus the street.

Downers

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.

Comments

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

Downers

None that I know. I very one year here and I have a good experience

Comments

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.

2 years so far at Citigroup out of college

3.0 of 5 stars

June 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

1. Good work/life balance
2. Best bank in terms of global reach
3. Good leadership at the C-level

Downers

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 this
3. Like all companies, promotion process can get very political

Comments

Meet somebody or reach out to somebody who works at Citi- they have a very good referral process

Its huge and culture varies by team and LoB

3.0 of 5 stars

March 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Its global and provide you option of moving internally to different products and teams.

Downers

Its quite bureaucratic and slow. There is a high possibility of you getting lost even if you are star performer.

Comments

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.
