    I have been working at CIBC World Markets full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent salary and people are pretty nice. Stable job

    Cons

    Long hours Don't learn much A lot of older higher ranking employees that seem to be promoted based on just time with firm A lot of young people seem to be leaving for other banks which is problematic and makes me wonder what others offer. No real career growth, just title inflation as time progresses and salary raise over time.
