Mostly worked on rebranding - Internal temp position
Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 13 August 2014
Was instrumental in working on the rebranding efforts after the acquisition of Cal-Fed Bank. This position was a temp internal position which did not offer any advancement or benefits, and had the understanding that once the rebranding was well in hand the position would be eliminated.
During the course of this position, I was instrumental in creating monthly report binders in which to ship off to the Florida office of Citi along with copies for the New York location. I also planned several onsite lunches as well as off-site dinners for all the office executives.
One part of the job I used to enjoy was when the attorney who worked on our floor used to ask if I would be willing to transcribe his notes from cassette so he would have paper copy to take with him. This used to bring me back to my younger days of transcription, when I used to temp at a lawyers office.
The only downside was the day that the rebranding efforts were deemed to be well in hand and my position was dismissed.
Best leaders/mentors, operations environment is not as great
Senior Fund Accountant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 August 2017
I met some great leaders at Citi, and learnt tremendously from them. However, in operations, staff are not as smart and efficient; they are not as willing to learn and improve either. It is overall disappointing.
My experience in Citi Bank was absolutely fantastic, I loved the culture there, My colleagues and bosses were all very nice people. The environment was fast paced but thoroughly enjoyable and learning. There were good advancement possibilities and incentives were high.
NETWORK INTEGRATION AND BUILD ENGINEER (Former Employee) – London, ON – 14 August 2017
I was managed by a very demanding boss. I was fresh off the boat in Asia Pacific projects doing Data Centre maintenance and integration of new services, when I was plunged to the deep end of external client service integration without any knowledge of the present infrastructure. I had a difficult time to adjust and the learning curve was very steep without any encouragement from my present team. I was able to survive it through.
The later work office was in Canary Wharf which is nearer to my home.
Initial travel time to Lewisham office is quite long.
Credit Reviewer (Former Employee) – National Capital Region – 8 August 2017
I primary job is to review and approve loan application coming from our branches. basically my responsibility is to make sure that all loan application is done prior to our credit policy. My stay in Citifinancial helps me develop my decision making in terms of credit underwriting work. I enjoyed my time because Citifinancial has a good working environment that practice professionalism.
Great place to work and learn and progress but....
Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 29 July 2017
Too much of work pressure and working 10 hrs is a norm and expectation from the management though you are only paid for 7.5 hours. Weekends are also tight. this might not be entirely true if you are working on the development or any other team. Support teams are fully loaded. Salaries are just good enough but not at par with the market. No work-life balance!!
free car parking
less salary, more work including weekends, no personal life as you grow up
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,
Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 May 2017
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.
