fair pay. able to work life balance. reasonable manager for me but it depends what team you are following with. However, system and computer are not that user friendly in some circumstances

Nice colleagues and good work culture

Colleagues are nice and willing to teach.Casual culture, no micro management.Salary increment each year is too little.Difficult to change to other departments.
Was this review helpful?

Unfortunately, I worked in Equities in Hong Kong during the 2010s. An old (Caucasian) boys network ran the trading floor like their personal fief.

The pace of the entire trading floor is lethargic. They management scramble every few quarters with a new plan, never having successfully completed any previous plans nor stopping to evaluate/learn from the past. Analytical, thoughtful and quiet people are often overlooked/ignored for pay and promotions. Having managed teams, I found it difficult to equalize pay across staff members who were doing equivalent work, because the biases at more senior levels of management (e.g., "that person hasn't been here as long" or "that person needs to work harder" - despite the fact that objective job performance and reviews were excellent - were used as excuses to prevent me from equalizing pay for underpaid staff (who happened to be non-white).

Pros

If you keep your head down and smile and laugh at the right people at the right times, you can survive a long time on a good salary at Citi.

Cons

If you want to learn and grow, and be treated fairly based on your contributions, you can find a better place to work.

Great opportunity

Citi overall is a good company to work for. It gave me the opportunity to work in Hong Kong and with different groups of people. It provides training as well.

Challenging work environment that requires your focus and diligence

Citi is a fantastic place for someone looking for challenges in areas that are not necessarily his or her expertise. If you are looking opportunities to grow and learn something new, this is the place for you.

Challenging

This job was really challenging and it gave me a lot of different experiences in different field. My job in this company was to perform checking account documents and other minor tasks if necessary. The hardest part of this job was to handle some unexpected tasks which requires you to consult colleagues from other departments.

Good place to gain experience

Colleagues and management are friendly. High volume of work and busy at daily operations, overtime is required from time to time. Poor bonus while benefit is not bad.

Investment banking environment.

I only worked there for short period of time, supporting the HR team on performance management projects and daily HR operation. The culture in investment banking industry is different from a professional company, and I left because I was poached by my ex-boss and joined UL international.

very long working hour

Citibank (HK) is a very busy and high pressure place to work at. But the co-worker will stick together and the managers will do everything to support other staff which is great. The working hour is really long, around 12 hours day

Pros

good co-worker

Cons

very long working hour

不錯的公司

工作量不多,但是公司的制度比較混亂,沒有一個指定標準,基層員工難以跟從。公司有健康的work life balance 文化,但沒有好好的宣傳,比較可惜。環境是以office為基礎,沒有太大問題,但是管理較嚴,不允許使用手機,這一點希望可以著情處理。

OK place

Bank is OK. not Level 1 top tier but there are worse. people not as collaborative and willing to help as european banks, maybe because it's so big. you ask a question of someone and they just say they dont know, and dont offer to help you find out more, or suggest someone else who might know. it's like pulling teeth, you have to baby them the whole way.

Cons

low pay
