    Pros

    Manager cared about my development and offered many opportunities to apply myself. Great pay and room for independence. My fellow employees are amazing.

    Cons

    No growth or career development . People at the Director level and some life-time VP's never leave which further compounds the problem

    Advice to Management

    Set up a career path for associates and give more training to employee to increase effectiveness.

    Pros

    Collegiate and collaborative atmosphere...at CIT, even when in a control or risk function people are polite and ready to work toward solutions. It is a refreshing and energizing place to work. Work-life balance is also excellent.

    Cons

    As it continues its transition from finance company to bank, there are some adjustment pains. The different functions don't always know their boundaries, and new policies and procedures need some weathering.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up good work toward bank organization and controls, but don't forget our origins in middle market and equipment financing.

    Pros

    Manager cared about my development and offered many opportunities to apply myself. Great pay and room for independence.

    Cons

    Few birthing pains as the company was still growing, so one had a few delays here and there as posts/systems were being filled/developed. Felt like a bit of a startup as the company is transforming itself.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the current path as change is essential and refreshing.
