    Pros

    Great HR, Benefits, etc... A great place to just collect a paycheck, if you have no drive or career goals.

    Cons

    Just a paycheck with ZERO career opportunity unless you previously worked with and are friends with the current (former failed BOA IT managment) now in place.

    Advice to Management

    None...

  3. Was a great company to work for several years ago.

    I have been working at CIT

    Pros

    At one time seemed very interested in development, training, and advancement of employees. May not be too far gone to get some of that back.

    Cons

    In the past year or two, Integrity and honor seems to have been replaced by the typical big bank "everyone is replaceable at any moment for any reason" stance. Pays well but certainly isn't a stable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. The decisions coming from executive row seem to be made in a vacuum, at least with regards to working conditions or employee relations.

    Management does not care about worker bees anymore

    Get rid of highly paid senior managers and save the people who do the work.

    Pros

    Small company, good culture and people, good benefits, less stress than other New York Bank Holding Companies.

    Cons

    This is a 100 plus year old firm which is in transition. the business is growing, evolving and this can be a challenge for staff.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the core values on which the firm was based while focusing on employees - great and satisfied employees will make the firm succeed; overlooked and underpaid employees will do the opposite.

    Great co-workers, professional but exhibited a good sense of humor. Good benefits, paid time off, and holidays off.

    Pros

    The people are fantastic! Really great, intelligent people.

    Cons

    The company is struggling with who they want to be and what the areas of focus are. Plus there is still a lot of apathy from bankruptcy. Senior management is not in touch with all of the businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Put the businesses first.
