Lots of opportunities
Senior Vice President (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 May 2018
Great place to learn, lots of room for advancement but the work can be gruelling and the hours can be very long. Turnover has recently been higher, so have constantly have new staff. But the opportunities for quick advancement are there.

stressful, poor managed company
Supervisor, Investor Relations Department (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 April 2018
Citco has a high turn over rate due to company mismanagement and poor team management. They continue to promote people based on technical skills and not leadership skills. Typical work week is 50+ Hours and most people do not take breaks. Upper management knows this and does nothing to change the culture or create positive change.
Pros
good benefits, good number of vacation days
Cons
no breaks, long hours, no career advancement

Significant room for improvement

Great working experience but terrible pay
P&L Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 March 2018

Pros
Great work/life balance
Cons
Terrible salary

Investor Relations Administrator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 January 2018
Citco has the worst management style. If you are looking for a job that provides you with an opportunity to progress.. do not apply here. The working environment is extremely toxic.

This company has a good culture and people are great to work with. The work typically involves reconciling client trades to third party brokers and striking a NAV.

Culture is great
Manager / Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 September 2017
The overall culture is great at Citco. The management could use training in succession planning. There is too much overtime by some and none for others.

Lack of management and training. No room for moving up within the company.
Investor Relations Associate (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 August 2017
- No training program as the head trainer quit
- Have to rely on co workers to train you which they are not experienced in doing so.
- Lack of management skills (reason for very high turnover rate)
- People working there for 4-5 years, still in the same position
- Currently short staffed because of such high turnover and lack of hirings which results in you taking on other funds outside of your team
- Workload is at 150% because of employee shortages.
Pros
free beer after 5pm, good benefits package
Cons
long hours/life-work balance is lacking/chances of promotion are slim

Good place to start a career
Accounting Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 August 2017
Citco is a great place to start a career in finance and accounting especially if you are interested in finance/hedge funds/investments etc. There were lots of young educated professionals to work with. It may not be the place for everybody as there is a very youth-oriented culture. Many people used Citco as a stepping stone to other careers in finance, often joining the finance teams of Citco's clients.

Draining and Stressful
IR Administrator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 July 2017
Good as a stepping stone, not for a career. Worth the experience to get your foot in the door for the industry but unwise to hold a position for more than two years. Work life balance is not valued.
Cons
long hours, little advancement, lack of honesty

Workplace where young professionals develop their skills and grow
Manager - Hedge Fund Accounting (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 July 2017
Daily work consisted of answering e-mails, reviewing work completed by the team and supporting departments, and discussing progress with the management team. The challenge often is dealing with turnover, and training replacements as the come in. Depending on the team, the experience could differ, but there are resources available to answer questions.
Pros
Work perks - monthly cake, breakfast
Cons
Long Hours
