Employee - Vice President

I would suggest better communications between the leadership and mid level managers

Employee - Vice President

I would immediately rehire me for the position I was working. I was hired for a 2 yr contract but the contract ended prior to one month. I had vision to work for long term for this client and make a good career in Investment Banking. Due to factors beyond my control (health of daughter, wife whom I had to take to doctors frequently) my career got affected. Singapore was also a nice place to work with good infrastructure. Me having worked in USA for 10 yrs earlier, Singapore could have been an excellent choice.I had also traded in US markets extensively. Had done few courses in part-time MBA, had good grip on Finance, Investment Banking. Could have been a good choice for me.

Working in Singapore, working at Citi with well presented employees, well qualified employees some of whom had 2 double degrees was an honour to work with. However, when my 4+ yrs old daughter developed cough due to haze in Singapore, when my wife was not well, my sr. manager mentioned that family came first and allowed me to take them to hospital few times. However, the contract got ended. However the company could have provided some time for me to send my wife/daughter to India for treatment, recovery. If the company has given a break of a month or two instead of a permanent break like the one given, I would have still continued there and excelled in my work.

Employee - Vice President

First it began with a good office, good reception, good cafeteria, free bus service from/to Tampines to Changi Business Park (place where Citi is located) during reasonable hours of the day such as 7:00 am - 10:00 am, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Then it had friendly colleagues with excellent dressing sense, manners. Citi also had lots of in-house events which made working in Citi that much more enjoyable.Also some of my senior colleagues were traders in the stock market and held brokerage account with citi, awesome experience.

Employee - Analyst

Hours needs to be improved within the company

Employee - Analyst

you are in it for the brand name - get the pedigree and get out

Employee - Analyst

investment banking sweatshop like all of them

Employee - Vice President

For work life balance I would recommend. For actually making money and being respected, I would not.

Employee - Vice President

Know that you are not going there for money. You are going there to have much more flexibility within your life.

Employee - Vice President

Culture was great with the flexibility to work remotely, but from getting paid industry standard, forget it. Also, when the time comes, they are very much in a "Save Yourself" mode.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Better blend of investment banking and commercial banking roles

Employee - Senior Vice President

You have to be interested in traveling and working for a global company with global clients.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Inertia due to size of company with many employees from other firms, so no set culture.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Good culture overall but some incompetence rises to senior levels - the bank needs to get better at taking to task senior managers who make consistently bad decisions.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Citi is a good employer but not a great place to work and most people I know who have worked there stayed only 2-3 years. Most of the really senior people had been there for 15+ years which is part of the problem. Many of them don't know what they are doing and create issues in the areas they are responsible for. When more senior managers come in to clean up the mess, those who made the mess are shuffled off to another business unit but the business they wrecked is dismantled, sold off, etc. and all the staff who worked in it are either layed off or shifted to the purchasing company. Citi has to find a way to better manage its businesses and get rid of poor decision makers at the top.

Employee - Senior Vice President

Mid-level managers and junior staff were great - smart, dedicated, knew what they were doing. Senior managers had no idea how to run the business, what it took to deliver the services, how to prices the services at a profit, etc.

Employee - Managing Director

I would suggest that performance bonuses not be weighted so heavily on quarterly results but rather on long term results.

Employee - Managing Director

It was a great work experience, I formed personal relationships that are still active, and I learned so much.

Employee - Managing Director

The drive for results is the most important thing

Employee - Senior Vice President

It is a competitive environment and I don't think that will ever change. It drives that business and performance. I would add more "group/team" performance incentives to help squelch some of the cut-throat attitudes.
