Pros

The company has a good benefits package. There is a good work/life balance culture. There are seasoned veterans with a wealt of knowledge.

Cons

The Charlotte office has a flat organizational structure so there is not much movement for growth and advancement. After successfully completing the management associate program management associates are placed in positions where there is a need. The position may not necessarily be a good fit for the management associate.

Advice to Management

There are many seasoned veterans who have a wealth of experience at CIT. That is a positive. CIT should recognize that young talent who come to the organization should be groomed to rise up within the organization. Nepotism and handpicking certain employees for positions should be discouraged. It creates an environment where employees become distrustful of management. Try to foster an inclusive work environment as oppose to an exclusive work enironment. Work relations within the organization may greatly improve.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. They start you up on medical and dental immediately, no waiting period. the 401k match is great. overall the benefits are some of the best I have seen. The main reason I accepted the position

    Cons

    The training is horrible, No one wants to share information. There is little team work here. communication is lousy.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest he offer better training. Train managers to better assist their employees with work related issues. encourage the employee do better at their job. Your current mid to low level management often berate their employees for making simple mistakes.

    Not surprising the Home Lending unit failed during sub-prime crisis!

    Pros

    The benefits package wasn't too bad. I was able to get most days off. Some of the other supporting staff was very pleasant to work with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Management at local office was more concerned about the bottom line than the underwriting the correct way at times. This was a problem throughout the whole sub-prime industry. Doing the right thing and following guidelines all of the time would get you labeled a trouble maker. When asking for days off management would sometimes ask too many questions about why you wanted to take a day off or use a personal day.

    Advice to Management

    Better focus on quality control and lending within CIT guidelines.
