    I have been working at CIT

    Pros

    I would definately recommend a job at CIT. Sometimes there is paralysis by analysis, but what company doesn't? The work/life balance is great. The company is very socailly conscious and does many things in the community. Teams from multiple departments work well together. I've seen many positive changes here in the time I've been with the company.

    Cons

    Learning and following the processes, but this is much improved.

    Pros

    Motivated individuals who care about each other. They are trying to get the old-school mentality out and adapt with changing ideas. With new merger with OneWest, CIT has good outlook.

    Competitive pay with industry. Actually slightly better than industry.

    When I was able to ask CEO John Thain about what type of qualities he would look for in someone he was hiring he replied by saying people who are motivated, smart, and most importantly people who you can get along with. If you

    Cons

    Not necessarily a Con but work consumes a giant portion of your life. Hard to balance everything else you want to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
