    I worked at CIT full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company, good benefits, nice atmosphere. Most employees are friendly and willing to help you succeed.

    Cons

    I was hired while still in school and expected to know as much as others who have been working in accounting for 5+ years. Training was minimal/unorganized. No on-boarding or introduction to company. Interns got more training and learned more about the company than new hires. Depending on your department, you may be expected to work some insane hours. My manager always pointed out the negative, never said anything good, and definitely played favorites with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at departments with high turnover and ask what's going on that people aren't staying.

    Pros

    Smart nice people, certain divisions growing really fast. The CEO has done a good job of growing the company. The corporate culture is hard working but definitely not crazy.
