Friday the CEO sends out an email proudly proclaiming that the company made $22 billion last year.
Two hours later I am told on our team meeting that the bonus/raise pool is down from last year.
I just have no words.

Citi also slapped on a vax mandate and probably wonders why they can’t hire more 🤔

@AE1 I must know - do you wear a seatbelt? Do you follow traffic laws? Do you stop at red lights? Do you drive on the appropriate side?

But yes, let's talk about the new mandate the government wants you to do that is backed by science and would help *others*, not just you.

"full year 2021, Citigroup reported net income of $22.0 billion on revenues of $71.9 billion, compared to net income of $11.0 billion on revenues of $75.5 billion for the full year 2020."

Revenue increased by 5% and profits by 100%

Makes it more hurtful.

This sort of thing has happened to me at multiple companies.

Reminds me of one of my former employers. Perhaps it's a blessing in disguise that I failed to get an offer from Citi during my job search.

This is where the company I work for is heading. Big goal around being profitable, tons of talk from SLT about how the company is getting there, and then constant, "Well we won't pay you more and raises are out of the question" stuff.

Do we work at the same company? 2019 I got no raise while also getting a 5 star review. 2020 Covid hit and we immediately got bonuses taken away and raise freezes. 2021 3% raise - massive inflation and our company is hitting all time growth records month over month.

This general strike talk has really got me re-evaluating my whole career. I can’t complain about compensation, I’m paid well, I have benefits, and I have a roof over my head. But the work life balance and unsustainable productivity expectations that have been created by agencies that won’t say no to clients needs to change. We place/create ads to turn millionaires into billionaires while we’re treated terribly. Something’s gotta give. I don’t know a single person who isn’t burnt out right now
