Goldman Sachs wooper

Hello

I'm considering an offer for VP (software) from Citi for their innovation labs.

Any hints on what they're doing? What's the environment there and what's the general environment in Citi?

YOE 6. TC irrelevant as I'm not US based

      If you pick a rock and throw it in a random corner, itll hit a citi vp. Everyone is a VP.

    That lab supports markets and securities services. I’ve heard they focus on data science/visualizations and ML. Citi is a big company, with a lot of policies, and it can be difficult to get work done, but that’s true in any big, company. Typically, in the labs, you will be helping (in)validate feasibility of hypothesis from business and product partners. Often, folks that work in software dev there enjoy that they get to work on different things/new tech pretty frequently to keep their skill sets up. If you are cool with the total comp and the people you have met, seems like a good opportunity. Really push the get a director level role if you can. Citi have been reducing the numbers of director promotions the last 5-ish years, so more competitive than previously, especially in tech. Let me know if you have other questions.

    What is the location? Different Citi innovation labs in different areas focus on different things (tel aviv has one focus vs. Singapore vs. Dublin, etc.). Also, VP in financial services is not the same as in tech. Entry level = avp, next is vp (usually 5 to 10 yrs exp), svp, then director (usually about 15 yrs), then managing director (20+ yrs).
