    I have been working at CIT full-time (Less than a year)

    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.
