    I worked at CIBC as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The compensation was fair to good.

    Cons

    The place is permeated with a culture of fear. Management plays games to dodge the regulators and no one seems to have their eye on the big picture of who the bank is supporting and endorsing and what those clients are doing. There is no moral or ethical backbone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage in communication with your staff, and institute a zero tolerance policy regarding loud public verbal abuse of staff by senior members - or by anyone!

    I worked at CIBC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers and clients. Assistant Branch Managers were great for the CSR's.

    Cons

    Horrible experience with branch manager. Favouritism was blatant. High pressure sales and numbers to meet. Not necessarily what was best for the clients.

    I worked at CIBC

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more communicative of changes and challenges at the company.
