    Pros

    commercial international bank (CIB) is the place to learn and practice Banking in Egypt. i do recommend any fresh graduates to join this bank to benefit from expertise over-there.

    Cons

    commercial international bank (CIB) is the leading bank in egypt with a huge clientele base, so employees are more likely to work hard and for more hours than any other bank in egypt

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are okay.

    Cons

    Ageing systems and minds holding the development. Very limited career growth and development. Horrible working environment, Too much overtime, Aggressive targets that come at the expense of quality, Too much red tape and bureaucracy, lack of culture and values,and lack of vision and team work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to communicate with staff, promote Meritocracy instead of bureaucracy and hypocrisy.

    Former Employee - Wealth Manager in Alexandria (Egypt)

    I worked at Commercial International Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very good salary and incentive scheme.
    Branches are well furnished, clean and comfortable.
    Huge client base.
    You learn everything about banking

    Cons

    Unachievableand unrealistic sales target that is never modified to accomodate the circumstances (like political unrest or wasted days during curfew)

    Top management live in a bubble away from everybody else, they never listen and never try to understand!

    No proper training and they rarely encourage self development.

    very competitive environment that at some point turns unethical

    No clear career path, you might get higher grade and higher salary but you rarely get promoted because people just stick in their places forever, so in order for you to get a promotion the person ahead of you has to get fired, quit or die!

    Pros

    The Best thing about working in CIB Is the stability,Also the Salary is in a really good range compared to other Egyptian companies

    Cons

    There's almost no gained knowledge, That's according to the team you worked in but mainly most of the IT are like that , The office culture are so old school and illogical,You can do the most illogical tasks just because the manager said so,Promotions are scarce and not heard off in CIB.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve office culture,Provide leadership and value the opinion of your employees,Increase the functions of your teams,Make the employee manage his time and his tasks (Self Managed),Team Building and provide growth opportunities for the employees.
