    Pros

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

    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

    Motivated individuals who care about each other. They are trying to get the old-school mentality out and adapt with changing ideas. With new merger with OneWest, CIT has good outlook.

    Competitive pay with industry. Actually slightly better than industry.

    When I was able to ask CEO John Thain about what type of qualities he would look for in someone he was hiring he replied by saying people who are motivated, smart, and most importantly people who you can get along with. If you

    Cons

    Not necessarily a Con but work consumes a giant portion of your life. Hard to balance everything else you want to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    I think experiences will vary based on your department like any company but I like the small employee appreciation events this company throws as well as the way the company tries to keep employees aware of happenings in the corporate officer level. This company offers great benefits including it's paid paternity leave policy.

    Cons

    You have to be proactive about growth but I think that's the case most places.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees and we will keep working hard!
