Citi was a long term client. From top to bottom, many desis. Proud to see many desis in leadership position there. They also like to buy premium service. Takes good care of employees. As a desi i felt welcome and is one of my favorite clients.

This is really encouraging to hear! Thank you for the response!

Well all places where desis are bosses are the same ... toxic culture

I worked in their banking group for a bit. Truly detested the culture. Felt like the place was held together by a band aid and everyone was territorial and not collaborative. Am at another bank now and it’s night and day…

My experience- lot of desis from top to bottom. This makes the work culture a little toxic, with unreasonable expectations of working all the time. The usual desi culture of reverence and sycophancy also exists a lot. Be sure to have a decent manager.

That being said - I’m trying to balance knowing it may be lower with not accepting a low-ball offer due to lack of information.
