    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at CIBC World Markets full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendlier colleagues than you might get at other banks

    Cons

    Compensation is far below market. Base salary is unchanged from 10 years ago and there are no annual increases, even for the top achievers. Bonuses increase, but are still 15 - 20% below market. Work life balance has decreased as the bank tries to grow in the US without hiring additional people.

    Advice to Management

    No one expects to have a fantastic work life balance or even be appreciated at the junior level in banking. However, we do expect to be compensated fairly - compensation does not change regardless of whether the bank or your group exceeds its goals for the year. The only way to grow the business is the US is to pay people what they would receive elsewhere, otherwise you will lose all of your talented employees.
