Great office environment that includes fun social activities both during and outside work hours. Great atmosphere making it not seem like work.
Can get competitive as teams compete for individual clients. Definite sense of divide between support staff and Investment Advisers as could be expected. Nothing major and I would definitely recommend to a friend.

+ Company makes concerted effort to promote a creative environment where creative solutions are welcomed (RARE) . Very nice that it's not a boring corporate culture, rather a place where ideas are encouraged! + Learning a lot about CIBC products and offerings. Interesting employee perks (contests, performance awards, etc.) + Very supportive and positive online corporate environment. (Inter-office Facebook system was enlightening and fun, you could interact with other employees throughout the company)
+ Online Corporate culture was a stark contrast to the real world office environment, at least where I was stationed. Unfortunately leadership was often negative. Yelling by manager could be heard often whenever an issue arose, making concentration on work difficult. Leadership snapping at employees who offered calm reasonable solutions. + Staff / Management under-prepared for autistic employees (such as myself). Judgement and social exclusion by staff created a hostile environment for me, going in everyday became more difficult the more I was outcast by older employees who have not been educated about autism. (Lack of eye contact, social awkwardness, inability to read social signals.) These things were taken personally by staff creating a tense atmosphere, despite friendly attempts to explain my condition. + Poor training materials. Procedures would change daily, you might miss a change if you go to the bathroom. They do not keep a log of procedure changes, so when a process is introduced to a new employee, it is outdated. Management does not update materials. Good luck. + Some team leads are reasonable with correcting employees, some are down-right abusive.
