Don't get me wrong, i knew what to expect. During my time there the ethos was that Citi expected you to work, and work hard. Sadly this meant work-like balance was almost non-exsitent (i worked avg 60hrs per week, mon-fri) but i was paid accordingly.

Good company to get into and get experience and it helps (like most places) that you can network well.

Place is so poltical and very facial orientated....in other words if your face fits then so will you. Extremely political and HR could care less. If you raise issues no one really cares...they go through motions but with no value.

The pay rate is not reflecting the duties and the intensity of the job.
Other companies in the same industry pay average of at least 15% more for the same or less work load that we have to deal with.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
Poor pay

it was not a bad place to work - my direct team were great and my direct manager was hand on.

Unfortunately as you went up the chain it becomes a political place to be.
Pros
good location
Cons
bad senior management

very good company and team culture, good support to new team members, good work culture and work life balance.

Citi is more than a global financial services company. It’s an engine for progress. From the micro to the macro, from Australia to Zambia, progress starts here.

I was in a team of three in acompetition for a Citi Bank internship, and we had to raise as much money as we can for charity. We chose the "Music in Hospitals" charity, for which we played music in the streets to collect donations from people.

I have recently finished a contrat at Citi.

The role was rewarding in that I was it allowed me to expand my knowledge of fund accounting using migration tools in order to provide explanations on accounting methodoligy between the client's existing accounting providers and their new provider Citi.


The extremely tight timeframes involved meant working with close co-operation accros a range of teams and support staff.


The most distinct feature of this contact was that the director responsible for the client migration was predominately available in the team throughout and always approachable should other line managers be unavailable or working on other issues.


This was my first role involving out of hours work and night shifts. Having successfully completed this contract and come out the other end I am looking forward to more nornal hours of employment.
Pros
Looked after financially - exceptional day rate
Cons
Working night shifts was extremely challenging

Pros

Cons
Pas d'opportunités de développement autre qu'en Pologne
