    Pros

    A lot of benefits. Health care, tuition assistance, share programs, year end and monthly bonuses. There's an emphasis on client experience and not sales. A lot of mobility, there's a lot of opportunities for advancement. Managers are nice and approachable.

    Cons

    Depending on your role your work hours may be difficult to adjust to. If you are new and low seniority you may work late or on weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at CIBC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, and colleagues. Room to grow, bonuses and incentive driven. 3 weeks paid vacation and additional one week unpaid.

    Cons

    No parking available, limited paid spots. Shifts are based on seniority and not flexible at all.

    Advice to Management

    Stick the focus of customer service. Keep sales for outbound or in branch. I mean its not wrong to offer, but don't breathe down the necks of employees who dont get the numbers and are offering.

    Pros

    Not at all a sweatshop. People are nice and hard-working. Lots of work perks and benefits.

    Cons

    There is stigma whenever I arrange for work from home. It seems to be looked upon as being lazy. Also, there are too many contractors in my department that have key roles or high visibility. How come I am not being developed to do what they do in their roles? That way I can grow my career and influence.

    Advice to Management

    Push for more work from home arrangement. And never rely on people being at the office as a measure of their productivity. Just because I come in at 8 am and leave at 5 pm doesn't mean that I actually do work for that period of time.
