    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay package. I received a large increase in pay to work there. They spend on technology and provide the tools you need to do a good job. They provide adequate levels of training. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. The in-fighting was ridiculous among the various groups who could not get along. Each manager or executive blindly supports his own people.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the retention by enhancing the ownership and opportunities you provide to employees. Enact a job rotation program to provide a broader scope to employees.

    Current Employee - Management Associate in Charlotte, NC
    Current Employee - Management Associate in Charlotte, NC
    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    The company has a good benefits package. There is a good work/life balance culture. There are seasoned veterans with a wealt of knowledge.

    Cons

    The Charlotte office has a flat organizational structure so there is not much movement for growth and advancement. After successfully completing the management associate program management associates are placed in positions where there is a need. The position may not necessarily be a good fit for the management associate.

    Advice to Management

    There are many seasoned veterans who have a wealth of experience at CIT. That is a positive. CIT should recognize that young talent who come to the organization should be groomed to rise up within the organization. Nepotism and handpicking certain employees for positions should be discouraged. It creates an environment where employees become distrustful of management. Try to foster an inclusive work environment as oppose to an exclusive work enironment. Work relations within the organization may greatly improve.
