    Pros

    I would definately recommend a job at CIT. Sometimes there is paralysis by analysis, but what company doesn't? The work/life balance is great. The company is very socailly conscious and does many things in the community. Teams from multiple departments work well together. I've seen many positive changes here in the time I've been with the company.

    Cons

    Learning and following the processes, but this is much improved.
