Good on diversity

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great on diversity, provides opportunity to learn business and new technologies.Company invest in people and tries address employee issues. Is big on mobility and encourages employees to move across teams instead of leaving the firm.The downside is in work life balance. Teams are located across timezones so days are very long. Meetings sometimes starts at 7:30 or even 7 in the morning and have to go on call sat night as well with locations in Asia, even while company is talking about work/life balanceCiti's location strategy means major chunk of team members are in cheaper cost centres like in China, limited resources in NAM appears to be pre-occupied for most time on L3 support while teams in other timezones are able to work without distraction on new functionalities.Team events are organized for keeping up team morale, but these events are mostly after hours so goes into personal and family time.

Pros

Diversity, new technology, career mobility

Cons

Work life balance, working in NAM can be very stressfully becuase of L3 support requirments.

Good place for only short stay as a step to higher career forward

This site is full of one specific ethnic unfortunately, which is definitely not fair to other ethnic and could potentially violate the equity of employment although they will not admit the fact. There is only one culture: high pressure, work, work, and work. As a global company, people end up working around the clock and not being compensated accordingly. Weird thing is they give employee a strange and high title, like AVP for all senior developer which sounds like Assistant Vice President, and VP is just the manager level in any other industry. Another factor making Citi a truly nightmare is its location, which is very far west end beyond Airport, this makes the commute a very high expense (travel time on forever jamming 401 and ridiculous high ETR 407 cost) to lots of people living in Toronto east/north end which are the traditional residence area.

Unreasonable expectations and work culture

* Expected long hours of work without any compensation or day in lieu. * Micromanaged to the minute using desktop analysis tools * Had no bonus or adjustment to salary not even to account for inflation for 2 years as full-time employee until moved to another business * Lots of mandatory training for compliance but no investment in providing employees with job related technical training/upgrade opportunities other than Udemy for which you have no time left after your working day

Good Job

We came in early before anyone was in. It was a quick and easy way to make money when I first started working. It helped me to learn skills I'd need for later jobs.

Large Enterprise

Good mobility. Training courses available. Employee Survey done each year allows for good feedback. Great if you want to relocate as they operate in dozens of countries.

Citi

Although the support from supervisors was great, I used to work extra hours regularly and this affected my work- life balance. The work atmosphere is dynamic

Too much of work pressure

Not good for vendor companies. They are overburdened with work. Despite putting in efforts, vendors are humiliated. No work life balance. Location of the building is the best part and has easy connectivity to highway. HR is very supportive and address the concerns of employees. Quite a good place for employees to work here.
