Pros

CIT Group is a company that demonstrates respect and a high level of integrity. Although the financial services industry is struggling we appear to be making the right kind of decisions under the guidance of the CEO and senior management.

Cons

As with any other company, the management team sometimes forget that they most manage the people in addition the the work. Some lose site of the most important asset to the company, the people.

Advice to Management

Don't forget about the magnificient, skilled, and intelligent employees that are working hard each and every day to ensure the success of the company.

    Pros

    Majority of employees are friendly and easy to work with. Middle managment is talented and willing to work with lower employees. Plenty of projects and opportunities to get a wide variety of work experience. The company is large enough to offer good benefits package and fairly competitive compensation packages. Being of Fortune 500 size, it is a reputable company that can look really good on a resumee. Very corporate atmosphere, nice office space and comfortable amenities. Location of offices is usually very centrally located in major cities across the globe. Opportunities to expand globally are a possibility in the near future.

    Cons

    Small business sector (Rail) has limitied opportunities for advancement within the company. CIT is not very open regarding their compensation possibilities, everything regarding pay, bonuses, and raises is kept very quiet. Employee training programs are HORRIBLE. No way to advance your own knowledge within a position without looking for outside opportunities (which may or may not be reimbursed.) Knowledge and information systems seem very stagnant. Though new ideas are encouraged and received well, little encouragement and support in actually inputting those new ideas. Due to the nature of the [rail] industry, much of the technology is behind the times and not as efficient as it could be.

    Advice to Management

    Begin investing in employee development programs. This is key to employee retention. Also, place more importance on employee ratings systems. These are not taken seriously and there are employees who are very clearly not doing the work they are getting paid for. Start offering middle managment more support for fixing the problems.


  2. "Don't bother, if CIT survives it may not be of any value to work there."

    Pros

    Technology is leading edge. Some of the front line technologists left are very highly skilled. Most have left or were outsourced to India.

    Cons

    Outsourcing culture. Senior management is very susceptible to group think. Like minded individuals with poor management, decision, and communication skills who surround themselves with individuals with poor management, decision, and communication skills.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost the company's trust. Decisions that were made to make CIT a Fortune 200 company have backfired and now the company is trying to survive during this financial crisis.
