No work and social balance
They mention occasional overtime in the contract however expect to be doing 45 to 50 hours a week. Management does not give much attention to mental health of employees.

Need to work OT sometime
I really depends on the team you are working for. Some teams are good, some teams need to stay late almost half of the month. Training is available for new staff which is really helpful.
Pros
Free beer after 5pm
Cons
work OT sometime

Great place to work
The work becomes monotonous at some point and the skills are not transferable if you don't intend to be in the field for long. Career advancement abound.

Worst Company to work
Management lacks direction and does not care for employees.

Everybody show off the position they are on. Not concerned with employee skill enhancement or growth. How much ever effort you put in, the management does not recognise it.


Employees at the bottom level are not treated with dignity.

lol
How to say... Don't work there. There is something wrong in the company's culture and basically they are exploiting the new immigrants. Too high pressures with too low payments.

Too much OT, and poor leadership
Long hours are typically expected; initiatives are not communicated effectively; toxic leadership with little regard for teams wellbeing.
A lot depends on which team you land in, due to inconsistent leadership - with little accountability and transparency at the SVP level and above.

new style skate sharpener for NHL
New sharpener is easy for use and can do a pair of shoes same time. also another product named Sani Sport cabinet for cleaning your suits for hocky. goog product.
Citco also made equipment according to the customer's need. From design to the Finishing. We made most of the parts ourselves .

Low salary, poor work/life balance
Long hours, low pay. Good starting grounds. Not much opportunities for advancements. You work on public holidays. Good pension match program. Cake and ice cream once a month

Failed in all areas
- People work Overtime until midnight just to show they are working...not actually to do work. Makes the rest of the employees who want to leave on time look bad. NO work life balance supported by the company
- Management does not work to support you in anyway, rather they simply give up on you

- Job itself was boring, repetitive

- People switch many times back and forth to this company for career progression because in-house progression to top levels is rare if you dont do this

- make you bill 7.5 hours a day even though you work 8 hours a day

- H.R is non-existent and doesnt care about you

- Seniority is HUGE, new individuals dont get any recognition or perks of the job, this includes trust of the management to complete your work. seniors will not work while juniors do everything and seniors do not face reprimand.

- If you try to take the vacation you are ENTITLED to, your manager WILL give you a hard time about it.
Pros
At least you're working downtown and can network for OTHER jobs
Cons
Low Pay, Long Hours, Poor management

Racist place to work
I was contracted as a Senior and all I did there was copy & paste, downloading statements. I felt the guys there were doubling the work just to get over time. They were working past 8pm almost every day. Alcohol was allowed after 5pm so those guys were drinking alcohol and doing the cash rec, no wonder payments were going to the wrong place, missing payments and all. A lot of Asians working there, a lot of recent grads working there, I didn't like the culture a bit and the reason why I left was the toxic culture, the little communities based on nationality. Citco in Toronto, wasn't for me, the training was rubbish, they teach once & give no time to take notes and they expect you to do the job right away, without much supervision. Citco Toronto was rather disappointing & as a female workers and I felt the pressure and disrespect, it's just that some races don't respect females at all!

Poor working practices
Good place to start your career, however, if you are experienced then it's advisable that do not apply at Citco. There's no work life balance and many times upper management is completely unaware about the situation on the floor. Managers and VP are strongly knitted and hardly listen to the employees and often tries to resolve the matters by themselves which results in constant shifting from one team to another. Expect to work 48+ hours a week which could be a big issue if you are not living in downtown. There's very little growth opportunity and a lot of times the right people do not get promoted due to favourism. The work and salary is not very competitive when compared to the the competitors. If you like to party hard then this could be a good place though as they have quarterly parties with free booze. The parties are pretty wild. Also, they provide free beer after 5, and unlimited supply of fizzy drinks and juices.

If you have a Yes Sir attitude, then you may have a better prospect to get promoted to senior or supervisor position. The managers, VP and the upper management only cares about their year end bonus even if it means great discomfort to the people working below them. A lot of times, management will promise promotions but it never happens and they promote their favourites or hire externally which greatly affects the morale. I have seen 3 cases with in a year where people left simply because they were promised a position and at the last moment someone else was promoted or Hired. Teams issues are never heard and communication never reaches the upper management.

Pros
Free ice cream and break fast, quarterly Team Outings.
Cons
Very long hours, OT is paid as month end bonus (heavy tax implications), poor management, heavy micro management, and unrealistic expectations

Great for entry level positions
The culture is young and relaxed. Citco is good for starting off your career. There is free breakfast and dessert every month along with some other perks.

Productive and comfortable workplace
Competitive and enriched daily work.
Learned how to communicate with colleagues and clients in an efficient way.

the culture encourage the employees to be self-motivated.

the enjoyable part is that there are some new issues that you can learn from, some development that you can be involved in.

the hardest part is to work with different departments in different time zone.
Pros
Monthly free breakfast and birthday cake
Cons
Long hours at Month End
