Analyst (Former Employee) says"Micromanaged to death. Underpaid and underappreciated. The VP of operations is a power hungry, backstabbing, evil witch! Avoid at all cost! Did I mentioned the location of the office was a nightmare?"
Teller 1 (Former Employee) says"Horrible time at the branch meant management forcing the tellers to open up credit cards and during the most busiest time of the bank was on Friday’s and branch manager wouldn’t know how to use the system.Good coworkersNo breaks, busy, demanding"
Collector 2 (Former Employee) says"Very unprofessional and ghetto and pays under what you deserve I do NOT recommend anyone working thereFeels like a high school and the managers are slimey and scandalous and unprofessional Cafe on site and gymNada"
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"The bank tells CSR's to have customers call the president of the bank and we give an 800 number. It is a joke. One customer took the bank to court because they held his account and would not release it when he left.I can't think of anyHorrible workplace"
Credit Analyst (Current Employee) says"Avoid at all cost, what you're hired for can change at Citibanks discretion. No no no no no no no no no support. Just get on the phone and take calls, "training is almost non existent."
Service Processor III (Former Employee) says"Hours were not flexible, expectations were to do the work of 3 employees, raises were never offered, no room for advancement. Years of dedication were wasted. I realized they made mistakes and brought it to their attention in order for us to not continue making those same mistakes and instead of rewarded for my attention to detail- was fired as fast as they could get me out the door"
AVP (Current Employee) says"Open culture, with free flow of information Be aggressive to beat the bureaucracy and find a way around Some people in their drive to impress senior leaders tend to stretch and push the team"
CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER(TM) says"They are driven by greed and profit. They are run by white guys in ties who are so removed from the day2day of living and working in the real world. Opinions are frowned upon and often punishable. They accept mixed messages and inconsistent policies across the different organizations of bank, business, brokerage, mortgage. They treat employees like garbage. I do not know how they stay in business.NoneEverything you can imagine"
Costco Customer Service (Current Employee) says"Don’t work here, you’ll feel enslaved the whole time you’re there. The managers don’t care about anything except their bonus, your good numbers means they have a bonus. They won’t change your hours for any personal reason even if the doctor recommends part time, they won’t help you in any way, they treat you like an extra number.Not horrible payThey don’t care about employees"
Business Control Specialist Manager (Former Employee) says"The company pick and choose whom they want to be in certain position does not go on the growth and career experience along with the education background"
Closing Disclosure Analyst (Former Employee) says"Citi was a great place to start with this type of job and helpful manager taught you a lot. Just not easy to move up in the company due to the financial office you worked in doing loans."
Branch Service Officer (Former Employee) says"I started as a part timer. I was very productive and was one of the very few who was not made redundant as I was good. I applied for a different post and I was not given that job as the company only wanted to give that job who were being made redundant. Management too is very political. It is important to know people if you want to get promoted. Hard work does not count."
Senior Specialist (Current Employee) says"Awful, they do not in any way look after long term staff. They encourage extremely competitive environment. Management do not share the bonus pot what so ever. Very bad HR."
Application Processor (Current Employee) says"Horrible experience a lot of discrimination, bad vibes, very unhappy working there. Management show favoritism, employees are overworked and underpaid."
VP, Global Finance Lead Analyst, Finance & Risk Shared Services (FRSS) says"Good people but mismanagement and toxic environment, commute was great and I was able to work remotely up to 3 days per week and the bank holidays are great. Nice PTO at my level too but the actual team and specifically Sr Mgr who got promoted to Director was not a good manager within the FRSS group. She lied, spoke about other employees work and personal issues which was inappropriate."
Business Analyst (Former Employee) says"Working for Citi group was the worst experience of my life! If you have any issues regarding your mental health do not work here! This place will kill your positivity, spirit and soul. It’s like the grim reaper in the form of an office. The managers are atrocious. During my time I had 2 different managers. The one woman was quite a piece of work. She was rude to all her employees, myself included. She would talk to us like we were teenagers and give us attitude for simply asking a question. She worked from home a few days a month. Not for any reason, but to stay home with her cats. Actually pathetic when you think about it. My other male manager was better but still condescending and rude. I asked to come in about 15 minutes late because I had a dentist appointment. He firmly told me no and if I have an appointment I have to take the full day off. I can’t just stay a few minutes later or work through part of my lunch. They timed your progress and how productive you were. If you were not productive for 85% of your day you were ridiculed and reprimanded. So you could take about 2 minutes to run to the restroom once a day and maybe take 20 minutes of your one hour lunch. Otherwise you were chained to your desk. If you even remotely enjoy your life, family, friends or mental and physical health I would STRONGLY suggest you forgo working for here. This place will kill your positivity and spirit in a matter of months. Do yourself a favor and skip this one!"
Senior Vice President (Current Employee) says"Management will claim that they care for you, but it is all nonsense. Directors behave like they own the staff and pay for their salaries. No transparencies in career progression. Never join this place."
Teller (Former Employee) says"-New hires earn more money than experienced employees than have been in the company for years. -Promotions are subject to Area Management mood or own rules. Not being promoted within the same branch for example. -Tellers and bankers usually know more than managers; biased hiring process. -Worst HR department ever; always on the managers side."
Customer Service and Sales (Current Employee) says"Unrealistic expectations. Except you to do the job of 5 departments for less pay. Systems never work there are always system issues clocking and a lot of other issues. Underpaid"
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) says"Workplace Culture was not innovated. Supervisor lied on a regular bases. Team Leads not trained for the supervisor role, instead came in because the mortgage department closed. Cit made poor choices with customer service all the time"
