    I worked at CIT full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company has adequate scale to offer diverse career path opportunities and yet is small enough to enable frequent access to senior management. Undergoing change which affords those with ambition and talent an opportunity step up into larger roles.

    Cons

    Company has undergone multiple management changes in recent years resulting in shifts in strategic priorities and an environment of constant change. Exec management focused on pleasing new bosses as opposed to team/employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of you.

    I worked at CIT as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company itself seemed to have fairly good culture, and my coworkers were all friendly and helpful. The internship program in general was well-structured and we had several events like lunches with higher-ups and other development opportunities. Pay was pretty good for an internship.

    Cons

    At least in my case, my main issue was that I didn't have enough meaningful work to do; a lot of the time I was just twiddling my thumbs. I think the team I was hired into was somewhat unprepared for my arrival and didn't have enough things ready for me or general tasks for me to contribute to in a meaningful way.

    Advice to Management

    For interns in general, it would be good to prepare more prior to arrival; I and several other interns didn't have access to vital things like phones and computers early on, and I also lacked the necessary permissions for a tool necessary for the project I was hired for.

    Pros

    I've been with the company for a few months now. I knew as soon as I interviewed with Sr Management this was a positive environment to build a career. They offer professional flexibility to keep you engaged and strongly encourage learning and development. Management is available but allows independent productivity to encourage growth. All departments come together as strong contributors to their local community through volunteering and monthly charitable contributions. I feel they genuinely value the work of their people. They are flexible and allow work from home as needed. They definitely understand family and work to provide a good work/life balance. The benefits are comparable to similar companies. Management is very knowledgeable and keeps an open door policy. Staff is very friendly and Rail, as a whole, is a very interesting field to make a career in. Advancement opportunities: Unsure Pay: Fair PTO: Sick, Personal and Vacation

    Cons

    No cons so far.
