    I worked at CIT as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Smart nice people, certain divisions growing really fast. The CEO has done a good job of growing the company. The corporate culture is hard working but definitely not crazy.

    Cons

    In certain division, disorganized but people have good spirits about it. Certain divisions don't seem too busy but some are overworked.

    A temporary employee through Kelly Services. Last year at employer 2009

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant  in  Livingston, NJ
    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Livingston, NJ

    I worked at CIT as a contractor

    Pros

    They appeared to have a lot of strengths and were organized. Decent pay. At the time that I was there in the Livingston office they had a good chef in their cafeteria and the price of lunch was not expensive. After he left it still was pretty decent. The department that I worked in was pretty clean looking with cubicles that was were decently spacious and lightly colored. I believe that room was newly done. I was treated nicely and the employees seemed to have community like mentality and seemed to help one another. Monthly they would have birthday celebrations with a cake ordered by the Admin for employees that were the born in that particular month. For Christmas, even though I was only a temp, they gave me a $50.00 gift card, and I was only assisting on certain things.

    Cons

    I would have to think about it.
