Productive but slow pace and low morale given ongoing lay-offs
Exec Assistant for SVP, CFO and CCO (Current Employee) – Livingston, NJ – September 9, 2013
A typical day at work is pretty diversified, demanding and filled with many facets of administrative work for C-Level Leaders. Extenstive internanational travel, calendar management, processing Visa/Passports, scheduling meeting/webcasts/videoconferencing, etc. Screening telephone calls, greeting visitors, guests and business partners. Managing highly confidential and sensitive information, processing expense reports, invoices and purchase requisitions.
My co-workers are essentail and interractive part of the day. Working together and collaborating, sharing information, coverage is a great benefit of working at CIT.
The hardest part of my day is dealing with overall low morale due to the ongoing lay-offs (restructuring) across CIT. Layoffs have been a big part of the culture here for the last 3 years and it has created a very insecure and demoralizing work environement for many. There is little trust and a lack of motivation that is apparent across the organization.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility I have with my immediate manager and the location.
