Every large corportation is the same, no company is perfect. My job is not perfect and I don't sit back in "fantasy land" thinking that it is. But you all work for a company that pays a good salary with a lot more time off then most people at other jobs get. In branches you have the opportunity to earn bonus - hello! Think of those support staff employees that don't get any of it and watch a bunch of whining assistant managers and customer service reps make more then them in salary and then get bonus and other "contest deals" on top of it... It's very agrivating. We have turned into a society of "what about me??" complainers. If it's not the exact way you want it you complain and think the grass is greener everywhere else. You think you are getting "screwed"... well, I'm here to tell you that if you were laid off, you were given better severence packages then most people with other companies. Good grief. If the company is not making the money, how can they afford the personel and the overhead? And don't complain about "upper management" and the money they make. I get sick of hearing that in this country these days, too. We have become a society of whiners. I am raising my children to do their best and be thankful for what they have, in good times and bad. Maybe we all need to sit back and be a little more gracious for what we have and stop all the complaining.

You are right, we should never say anything or complain about anything and be thankful we are selling our country out to the China. Like outsourcing jobs everywhere. Take jobs away from true americans no someone like you who believes its allright because you still have a JOB.

I worked for this company for over 20+ years. I was always was on the top 10 in our district. Closed one of our offices and told me my job was safe ....only to send me to the other branch in the city. Work my ass off then send compliance officers in to find something I did wrong??? I would never violate a policy...actually I was even yelled out for not doing what I was told to do when I knew it was not a violation... They terminated my job told me to take my personal things and leave that my job at citi was done......what really sucks is people who have been written up for not doing their job are still employed even a employee that was on final warning for being late using cell pho at work surfing internet is the only person who still has a job...... the other people I worked with were late every day... took over hr lunch then took over 1hr to 2hr is the john daily are still working???? They did their collections in am the went to lunch and surfed the web after lunch?? Guess what they still have a job...... This company shows so much favortism..Hell the manager would even take a loan from you when you solicited the customer and give it to a employee that was struggling and written up because they might have talked to customer in last 30-60 days??? the people who are close enuf to go party with the manager and co-worker are still employed. and former employees are still partying with them and having a good time... Us dumb asses that actually worked and did our job got f-d in the a with nothing..... dont understand.... people who did good for years lost job--- some with no severence but some of the ones who just were assholes to work with and didnt do things by policy were given a severence pay???? Funny how the day before I was told to leave --with nothing---but couple days of earned vacation.... and 3 business days of Medical insurance...when I have several disabilities..... Doesnt make sense... what if I would have been drinking buddies and f-d off all day I might still have my job....but people with intergerity and morals get f-d with nothing It was also kinda funny how all employees including former employees knew the day prior to my termation.... All of which were my friends on facebook....all of which de-friended me the day prior... What a bunch a Losers.....

Thats the Citi way, how about this CAD, suck people in with smoke and mirrors, skip your next two payments and have no payments till January, are you kidding me, the balance just went through the roof, I know for a fact customers are not being explained exactly how it works, most think "Oh there just going to add the two payments to the end of the contract" WRONG... Citi flips a $2500 furniture account and the customers on the for ever ever plan. When will it ever stop?

There is no doubt in my mind every word of this is true. Citi is a very dirty and nasty company. They have gotten away with treating customers and employees awful and then they get a bailout, seriously. Management and HR need to wake up and realize a bailout is nothing more than welfare and they are no better than anyone else.

Heard word that intentions to close ALL CFS branches..phase out over next year or so? AND cuts for FSN starting Jan2011.? Heard FSN has buyer to be announced Jan2011 also? & that the buyer intends to pick and choose who they are keeping, not just offices, but employees individualy. Anyone know about any truth to any of this? Thanks.
OH & by the way word to "Get over it plz" your time will come--count on it-- I used to feel the same way as you do about the company, until I shown just how much they appreciated how much I have done over the years. Sooner or later you will get kicked in the teeth, then you too will understand what everyone on this forum is talkin about!! If you think so highly of your job what are you wasting your time doing on this forum anyhow if you think we all just a "bunch of whiners"?!!

I have been hearing the same type of rumors as "sickandtired." However, I did not realize they were looking to layoff again so soon in FSN. Does anyone have anything further/clarification on this?

I don't think Fortress is purchasing Citi Fi. But reading through all your forums, it sounds like you all hate your jobs as much as we do!
