I have been working at CIT full-time

Pros

With an established practice of hiring internally to fill top positions and filling lower positions externally, CIT Rail is an excellent place to grow and have a career.

CIT Rail is very difficult to get into, the compay hires only the very best and brightest people it can find so you're always working with people you can respect and that respect you. Fit (group dynamic) is just as important as formal qualifications in the interview process so it's actually a fun environment to work in.

CIT Rail managment respects work life balance, I work very reasonable hours and as long as my work gets done very well, my manager allows me a lot of freedom with my time.

Cons

The onboarding process at CIT can be a bit slow, but it's definitely worth the wait.

When everyone on your team is smart, hard working, and looking to impress it can be difficult to stand out. Managment is cognisant of the fact that its working with the cream of the crop, expectations are very high but accomplishments are definitely rewarded.

CIT has become a bank holding company. For those of us who were here before, the environment feels more tightly controlled, less free, more guarded. I've heard from others who worked at other banks before or who have since moved to other banks, CIT Rail feels more laid back and relaxed than other banks though it is adequately controlled.

    I worked at CIT full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    many people stay at CIT for a long time

    Cons

    IT Department has had multiple layoffs in recent years leading to low morale and fears of total outsourcing of IT. Culture is focused on compliance and not technology. limited room for internal growth. majority of high-level positions have gone to new hires and not internal candidates. Business has low regard for IT department and thinks of them as an expense only.
