Demanding sales in a very competitive, financial meriocracy.
Sr. account manager (Current Employee) – Williams Lake, BC – 1 November 2013
High stress work environment regulated by meritocracy. I learned a great deal of the realities of the lending industry that demands unrealistic results in a volatile market. Problem solving, team work + results are demanded. The most rewarding part of the job is when someone hugs you, crying , thanking you for helping them. The comradeship is highly competitive as this is the basis of the meritocracy and is encouraged. After 13 yrs. of dedication to this type of employment, I am looking for new employment that will allow me to use my sales + customer service skills in a capacity more related to my previous sales experiences, in food and retail.
It was a very fun place to work, good management and really liked co workers. Very team oriented Only negative is the loans interest rates were too high and sometimes the sales goals were unattainable,

Lots of growth, interesting work. There is a vast array of technologies to work with; management is geographically dispersed, which can make it difficult to stay informed, but they do a decent job of trying to keep everyone in the loop.

Depending on which manager you get can make or break the experience. Over the span of the time I was employed, I had 2 managers. The first I really enjoyed working with, who supported her team. The second was the opposite where everyone fended for themselves, and the manager would not hire new employees to replace those who left. The remaining team had to take on the additional workload with no additional support.
Lots of days of overtime and late nights completing projects/assignments.

I truly enjoyed my time working at CitiGroup. Management lead by example and openly communicated direction. Each employee was always given opportunities to advance and recognized for your dedication and achievements. Good work life balance. Unfortunately Citigroup is very dedicated to outsourcing as much as possible to India.
Good work culture and focused for career development
