    I worked at CIT full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great company, good benefits, nice atmosphere. Most employees are friendly and willing to help you succeed.

    Cons

    I was hired while still in school and expected to know as much as others who have been working in accounting for 5+ years. Training was minimal/unorganized. No on-boarding or introduction to company. Interns got more training and learned more about the company than new hires. Depending on your department, you may be expected to work some insane hours. My manager always pointed out the negative, never said anything good, and definitely played favorites with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at departments with high turnover and ask what's going on that people aren't staying.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CIT in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Long, slow process. Was told during interview that they wanted to hire me, but it took about 3 more weeks to get final confirmation that I was being hired. Interview was somewhat awkward since manager was in and out during the process trying to find people to come talk to me. Seemed really disorganized.
