    3. Citigroup board's dilemma: Come clean or stay silent

      Citigroup's board has some explaining to do. The abrupt CEO transition has left a foul taste in the mouths of some. Analyst Mike Mayo did not mince words: "Citigroup has had some of the worst corporate governance under Vikram Pandit and in fact I think the way this transition has taken place is a microcosm of that poor corporate  governance…And it's one day after we were all listening to the CEO talk about the long-term strategy.
