-They provide decent employee benefits -Friendly co workers
Little support when dealing with difficult clients/situations. Wait times to call back office can be over 30min and many times they provide wrong information.1

- 3.0Apr 20, 2017Client AssociateFormer EmployeeEdmonton, AB
- Management and HR at the Edmonton branch were friendly and approachable - Funds paid for courses were re-reimbursed (after passing)
- Low base salary - Defined benefit pension is based on your base salary (not overall compensation) - New associates received higher base salaries than employees who had been there longer - No associates received a raise in base in 2017 - Your experience as an associate is entirely dependent on the financial advisor/ team you work with (my experience was disappointing but other associates I knew had better experiences)1

Good benefits, EPSP and defined benefit pension plan.
Depending on the team you work for, there may not be any opportunities for growth. Pay was relatively low.

CIBC offers many benefits and perks. As a big bank should. You are exposed to many influential and successful clients and coworkers
CIBC has very strick salary rules as they are on a level system. There is a disconnect when you work for an advisor as CIBC is your employer but you answer to your advisor. However CIBC is the one that pays the salary and the advisor pays the commission. It can be confusing and frustrating to navigate.

Possible monthly bonuses from IAs plus annual bonus from CIBC, great health and dental, defined benefit plan, Will pay for almost any industry courses you would like to do while working there Regional and national training conferences
High pressure environment with continuously increasing work loads, Base salary is a joke considering what is expected of you, Assistants or “associates” often used as scape goats for mistakes, Many IAs treat assistants disrespectfully, Old school mentality as many employees are 50, 60, even 70+ years old

Great benefits and vacation time
Depends heavily on the team that you work for. Understand your advisors long term goals.
