    Pros

    Good location, entry-level compensation is adequate, management is generally personable and easy to get along with, excellent in-office systems & equipment, and a good amount of knowledge resides in the office.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. Mid-level managers are exclusively grifted from GE or GATX; upper management (based in NYC) treats the rail division as a mere curiosity. Staff has limited knowledge of railcars outside of the mechanical group, and that group has been intentionally skeleton-ized and outsourced. (The finance group, on the other hand, is unnecessarily bloated) People with valuable industry knowledge & experience work here but middle management only rarely solicits opinions; decisions are always final, and often made without regard to feasibility and practicality.

    Advice to Management

    Remove current division management and begin the process of identifying (and fast-tracking) those within the group who have not only the knowledge of the industry, but a passion for it as well. Too many 401K-chasing managers work here who have the booksmarts, but no real motivation to make CIT a premier company in this industry. Company literature advertises CIT as being an industry leader in rail transportation finance, but from a customer's point of view they're probably #4 or 5, and dropping.
