A day in Citibank is a busy day, lot of things to finish in a tight timeline, but there are lots of sense of achievement. The challenges are there that really shape a person to be more productive than before.
I have learned to be more careful and at the same time, fast. However, the most enjoyable part is having nice colleagues who are willing to help me out despite being busy with their own work.
Typical day at work would start in planning strategy by prioritizing urgent items & scheduling a call to clear out requirements & establish guidelines and workflow process across business and product owners.
You need to prepare detailed reports to management stressing the problem , issue and risk and proposed mitigation plan.
The process would definitely provide advance knowledge on system structures. You would be able to help collaborate with various system owners .
Chalenging part on project process is to established single forum to discuss on solutions. Most product team is engaged on multi projects and participation & commitment is an issue
Enjoyable part of the job is providing community services , allocating time to understand other peoples need & provide help as part of giving back to community.
Pro-active department, Teamwork among colleagues, Fun and Co-operation across all units, lively unit to work with...
Salary is not increasing. not good bonus, but Citi is a good place to work..not only for gain experience but also gain knowledge.
