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

    Pros

    Really none to speak of other than some great co-workers.

    Cons

    Way too many. Most benefits, including 401(k) match, reduced each year, large layoffs of good people while incompetent management is left to run things into the ground, lack of basic office supplies, restrictions on travel and conference attendance, plus many many more.

    Advice to Management

    Just make the decision whether you want to sell the company or kill it!
    Everyone here knows these are your only options. You changed your cost cutting directive from $125M to $150M without a word and to meet this objective there are waves of layoffs planned.
    Things are spinning out of control and no one seems to care!

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

    Pros

    Some of the people.

    Cons

    So many. The company seems to be in a downward spiral, with good people leaving and an ineffective senior management team. New CEO is not impressive. Employees are not appreciated. Change is being instituted, but with no vision, no brand, new acquisitions that are not being well integrated and infighting between factions. Management being hired is not impressive and not working well together. CEO is wishy-washy and is not inspiring loyalty or respect. The good people who left realized this. It seems there are more people, even really long-time employees, voluntarily leaving every day.

    Advice to Management

    Frankly, I just don't see how you can recover at this point. But showing true caring for your employees would be a start.

    Pros

    Co-workers are good hard working people..help you deal with the nonsense

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else. Cuts to 401k match, additional layoff coming. Poor raise and bonus. Middle management is poor. Don't treat people well. They tell you your doing a great job during the year. Then when it is raise and bonus time you can't do anything right so no raise/poor or no bonus. Then right after that you improved and are doing well again.. until review time. Don't go there career killer with lots of stress

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees and take their concerns seriously and treat them right.

    I have been working at CIT full-time

    Pros

    Very little to speak of. What was there has been reduced each year.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance depends on department but is mostly non-existent. Company doesn't care about its employees. The work environment is very toxic now that they are selling off most of their profitable business segments. No one trusts what management says anymore.

    Advice to Management

    You pretend to speak about teamwork by giving out BS Chairperson awards to someone who prepares a spreadsheet or answers a customers question. Everyone knows this is nonsense so stop it already. Tell everyone exactly what is going on at CIT- you are either trying to position the company for sale or you are selling everything of value and then planning to close down without any notice.

  10. "Canadian division has lost direction"

    Pros

    Some nice people. Top management need to make the tough decision and eliminate some senior positions.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Very old school ideas and a lot of politics. Not sure who runs the Canadian operations. Most people can't wait to get a package.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully CIT will get purchased and eliminate all the tired old management.
