Pros

good pay & benefits, nice time off. employees get the attention they need. work hard and maybe you'll get promoted.

Cons

chances of getting promoted are slim. most of management is terrible. no water really knows whats going on. bonus is terrible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

do better communicating with employees. tell the truth and be honest with your people. maybe even promote people more. that would be nice.

    Company not sinking, but also going nowhere fast.

    Former Employee - Rail Leasing Customer Service/Mechanical  in  Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Rail Leasing Customer Service/Mechanical in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Good location, entry-level compensation is adequate, management is generally personable and easy to get along with, excellent in-office systems & equipment, and a good amount of knowledge resides in the office.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. Mid-level managers are exclusively grifted from GE or GATX; upper management (based in NYC) treats the rail division as a mere curiosity. Staff has limited knowledge of railcars outside of the mechanical group, and that group has been intentionally skeleton-ized and outsourced. (The finance group, on the other hand, is unnecessarily bloated) People with valuable industry knowledge & experience work here but middle management only rarely solicits opinions; decisions are always final, and often made without regard to feasibility and practicality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove current division management and begin the process of identifying (and fast-tracking) those within the group who have not only the knowledge of the industry, but a passion for it as well. Too many 401K-chasing managers work here who have the booksmarts, but no real motivation to make CIT a premier company in this industry. Company literature advertises CIT as being an industry leader in rail transportation finance, but from a customer's point of view they're probably #4 or 5, and dropping.
