  • This is absolutely appalling. There is no reason for women to be paid 30% less than men in 2019. During my time at Citi, I worked with many extraordinarily talented women and in many ways were superior in talent to their supervisor men.

  • If I read this article correctly, the headline shouldn’t be that women are paid 30%

    less than men given there was no adjustment for seniority, location, or job title. It stated

    that, globally women are paid “nearly” as much as men. “Nearly” does not equate to 30%.

    Granted, women should be paid the same

    Granted, women should be paid the same as men, no question, no argument but I struggle

    a little with the over-stated headline. I applaud Citibank for releasing this data, now comes the time

    to fix things....

  • I think this article is your typical fiend outrage and attention grabber. If you’re talking about same job and same tenure... I’d bet salaries are very similar if not the same. If you compare a bank teller to an investment banking director... well of course you’re going to have a pay gap. Show me all

  • problem is not about pays.

    It is the ratio of executives.

    Is it same position?

    I suppose that same position will get same Money regardless of man or women.

    I think city and many companies’s executives are men, so that women 30% less than men

  • The 30% isn’t adjusted for job title or location. It says as much in the article, but apparently the title “Women and Minority Groups are Wildly Underrepresented in the Upper Echelon of Financial Institutions” was too long... and insufficiently click bait-y.

  • The way the headline is framed seems disingenuous. It reads as if women working the same job for the same hours as men make 30 percent less which is just not true. The gap actually occurs due to a smaller number of women in high paid upper management positions since banks like Citi have been ‘boys club

    The way the headline is framed seems disingenuous. It reads as if women working the same job for the same hours as men make 30 percent less which is just not true. The gap actually occurs due to a smaller number of women in high paid upper management positions since banks like Citi have been ‘boys club’ establishments since its inception. I do believe the article should go after this culture rather than nuance troll.

  • Would be interesting to see the discrepancy with Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and other Large banks. If my suspicions bare out, their data will be as distorted. Banking has long been a boys club in upper management, while pointing to the success women have in the middle. Not right and indefensible

Banking has long been a boys club in upper management, while pointing to the success women have in the middle. Not right and indefensible. Women and men that support should transfer their accounts and credit cards.

  • Be very wary of the statistics. Is anyone reading the article? They do not add up or make any sense. If this is true, why would anyone hire men? Most companies care more about money than the so called “boys club”. The most appalling thing here is the lack an understanding of math/statistics in the US.

  • They don’t know administration

  • Unacceptable
