    It was an overall satisfactory experience

    Human Resources Associate (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsI found the people I worked with, i.e., my co-workers, to have high caliber moral and integrity. During the time I worked there - it was like a familial relationship.

    ConsLack of presence in the US. CIBC is largely a Canadian company and their US presence is minimal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo be more communicative of changes and challenges at the company.

    Great company to work with

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Structured work processes
    - Friendly people
    - Great time-off policies
    - encourage to take courses to improve knowledge
    - good compensation and benefit package
    - Work Life Balance

    ConsI personally didn't come across any cons except that there is an extreme requirement to the dedication of your time to work and socializing with teams. Sometimes if you have a lot of responsibilities, there is no time to socialize.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement could help by communicating requirements of the job to their employees more frequently.
