    I worked at CIBC part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The managers try their best to make sure you're doing your job well providing you with the resources you need.

    Cons

    It is very competitive and there is a constant need for improvements and development of skills. Overtime is somewhat expected

    Advice to Management

    Try to reduce turnover

    Pros

    They care about their co-op students. They offered career workshops and really welcomed their co-ops. We had employee appreciation day, got to go to a movie as a treat with our department. People were very friendly and were happy to offer help when you needed it.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and strong corporate culture

    Cons

    Generally quite good - a bit of corporate politics you'd get at any bank and the hours are brutal during intense deal periods - but it all comes with the job

    I worked at CIBC full-time

    Pros

    Great training, they will walk through all the way to be professional

    Cons

    To many areas you need be knowledgeable, that it's hard to track. Some of the systems are old-fashioned. Sometimes feels like too much sales oriented.

    Pros

    From my experience (5+ years) with CIBC, Management is keen on helping you and generally cares for your well being.

    Cons

    Lot of offshoring and cost savings are being implemented at the present time so tough to gauge what will happen in in the next few years.

    Advice to Management

    Quite a bit of office politics involved in certain areas that it becomes detrimental to both sides.

    I worked at CIBC full-time

    Pros

    People are nice and fun. Some teams have great dynamics. Meetings and relations are very structured. My manager cared about his team.

    Cons

    Changes happen at crawling pace. A turn-of-the-century era CMS was still in place and only slowly being replaced in 2016.

    Also you have to wear a shirt. Cheap shirts look cheaper when everyone's wearing them and you are not being paid enough to get good ones.
