"Great benefits, flexible work arrangements, and generous parental leave - not to mention career mobility. The work can be complex due to the matrix-like structure but management is supportive of these challenges and appreciate employees who make valuable contributions. "

"Stay relevant and forward thinking. Take continuous training. Limit complaining, but, do not compromise your values and opinions."
"Citi as a organization is an amazing place to work. It all depends on the manager and the division that will support you to help you become more successful in the organization. "
"What you put in is what you get. Regardless of gender, if you work to stand out, you will... and the company will recognize it. "
"Work/Life balance is supported, when I had to go out of town for my grandmother I was able to work remote, allowing me not to use vacation time. Also, the vacation time is very generous, allowing me to go out of town and have time to take days and stay home also around the holidays."

" Negotiate for the highest possible salary and title that you can as you enter the firm because it is currently extremely difficult to acquire salary increases or promotions."

"I'm not sure about all the other areas, however, in the retail banking sector, it is very difficult to be a single mom in this environment. They have cut staffing in all the locations and there is no flexibility in terms of the hours you can work. If you are in any kind of management role, you really need some kind of family or child care support because you work more than 40 hours."

"Citigroup as a whole has made great strides in its commitment to diversity and building an inclusive culture. Compensation policy is standardized and while pay bands are fairly wide and allow flexibility on new hires, it really limits you on internal moves and promotions. For horizontal moves in the same grade level, there is generally 0 increase allowed, even though you may be taking on new additional duties. For promotions one step higher, 10 percent is about what can expect. Be sure you negotiate as much as possible coming in. This is a review of CitiMortgage."

"You can get a lot of great experience over your time at Citi. They are definitely making changes to ensure equal representation of women and minorities in senior leadership but there is a long way to go. There are still too many stories of high performing women leaving the organization because they were passed over for promotions and better pay."

"Network under the radar, so that if you want/need to switch roles within the company, you have a variety of people to reach out to - outside of the formal application/interview process! - and can ask the important questions regarding flexibility that are seen as a red flag if asked during interviews.

"My experience was less than ideal. It came as a surprise to me to learn that, because my base salary was at the top of the pay band, it was capped the entire time I was at the company (more than 3 years). The only oppportunity for a base salary raise would be through a promotion, and there was very limited promomotion potential."

"Hard to say, other than to warn them that producing work as high in quality as a male peer's will result in him being promoted ahead of you. In fact, even if your work is better, and you have more experience, if the boss is a male, thr male peer will get the promotion, and consequently, the compensation."

"I only interned at this company for a year, but overall everything seemed very equal. I witnessed a lot of women rising to higher management/executive roles."
"Citigroup is a depressing place to work these days in general. The company is too big and innovation is nascent. It's hard to get anything done and the banks are generally being regulated to death. Citi Ventures, in particular, has entire team turnover every 2-3 years. Not only that, but nearly every Managing Director that has left the team has sued for various levels of wrongful termination. If you come in as less than a Managing Director, there is no career mobility or career development. You will be support staff for the MDs, who all just want to get back to a real VC. It's also tough to work there because you want to invest in and help all these cool startups you meet, but Citi is very limited in investment ability due to said regulatory issues, and the chances of the startup actually getting a pilot inside of Citi are slim. It's a painful, painful process to get anything done at this company."
"I was in a long distance marriage and got support from management to work remotely. Was great."
"I've worked in both the Banking and operational sides of the Company. More equal treatment and opportunity in the Banking side. Operations is stuck in the 70s when it comes to women. Worked at Citi for 15+ years. Earlier in career worked with female managers who were inclusive, mentored and advanced female staff. Very different experience working for managers in recent years. Currently, women in junior officer and administrative roles are left out of Women's organizations, networking and mentoring."
"great place to work, lots of opportunity and its a meritocracy for both men and women"
"Citi is a great company with great benefits...however, I have found it to be quite risk averse (of course, I can only speak to my group) and that can limit our ability to be effective. I also think there is a tendency to try to do things they way they have always been done and while I don't think the wheel always needs to be reinvented, I am afraid Citi Mortgage can get in a rut that is quite frustrating and feels like we are always chasing instead of leading. All that being said, I do feel that women have equal opportunities at Citi. I never feel marginalized due to my gender. What I said above is based on style and nothing to do with gender bias."
"Definitely a lot of men in senior roles. The overall challenges of the company make mobility difficult."
"I have worked here for 8 years and its pretty busy and demanding environment. I am managing a team of 8 specialists now so it is even more busy and demanding. My manager is respecting the fact I have small kid at home and need to leave office sharp 5 pm. Hi is also closing his eye on my leaving on time and being late from time to time, however he did not accept me working on flexible hours scheme as he was afraid it would affect team training and team management.Citi is quite good with maternity leave, they paid 26 weeks full salary, next was on statutory government base which was 136,00 Â£ per week ;/"
"I believe this is a good company to work for, based on my experience with previous companies, where the benefits were subpar compared to the benefits offered here. There is a diversity between gender and ethnicity amongst different positions and growth within the company is promoted. The company offers 13 paid weeks of maternity leave, matching what you are eligible for through FMLA. Compensation is based on your performance, but varies greatly depending on your position within the company."
"I worked at Citi for 2 years in the investment banking group in New York. Citi is a huge company, so experiences will vary wildly from group to group, team to team, and location to location. I found limited opportunities to network and there was a lack of senior male sponsorship of female employees."
"I started at a very low position and worked up to VP within 9 years. I very much feel ad though women are given the same opportunities as men. It just depends on how you network, and who you network with. Citi does provide a networking/mentoring program for multiple diverse groups. I feel as though the leadership and management terms foster supportive growth environments."
"Worked for 17 years. It was male oriented with women rarely in top management. Hours are long. If you are in a sales position goals are unattainable so you feel like you are being set up for failure. Policy's change almost on a daily basis. Respect and morale was low. Would not recommend."
