    Pros

    Good place to be for working parents looking for work place flexibility. Appears to a firm that is looking to grow especially thru OneWest acquistion. Strong executive leaders that are respected on Wall Street have brought CIT much relevance.

    Cons

    Senior management lacks transparency. In certain groups things change and we end up finding out from other departments. Certain managers seem to only care about themselves and fail to communicate important issues to staff. This leads to inefficiencies and low morale. Unfortunately this has lead to lots of turnover. Also IT has many issues including speed of service and increased disruptions.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees. Do not view them as just a #. The company also needs to be clear and stop dancing around true issues and resolve them with a consistent approach.

    Poor environment where people are not valued, only the perception on the street is valued

    Pros

    Pay - they overpay their new employees

    Cons

    -management would rather see employees leave then reward existing employees
    -no career path
    -constantly starting new projects without managing capacity
    -only focusing on the present, no long-term view and no leadership skills on the management team

    Advice to Management

    Abandon the acquisition strategy and focus on people and processes. Without fixing the core problems, CIT will always be a mediocre company at best.

    Pros

    CIT Group is a great Company to work for. Management is very dedicated to training younger employees. They go over and beyond to help new analyst. Depending on which department you are in, you usually have a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Company is in a transition right now, limited growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the training, it shows you are dedicated toward your employees.

    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...


  6. 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.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you want to have good benefits, a nice cafeteria, and very little challenge in your work. Would be good for employees of the DMV, for example. Only exception is Transportation business, which is a great business full of great employees working extremely hard to lead and innovate. Without Transportation, this firm would be a distant memory.

    Cons

    Systems are antiquated and there is no money for investment. The business are old, low risk, low return, and dying on the vine. Leadership is more interested in risk and compliance than in actually doing business, and after all the mistakes that have been made by the firm, they are more interested in making sure that investors are happy than whether its a good firm. Employees are either brand new and amazed at how backward the place is, or have 20 years experience and have completely forgotten how to work.

    Advice to Management

    Take some risks!!! This firm is incredible - there are Risk people everywhere, but the firm takes no risk. It's beyond bizarre.

    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.
