    I worked at CIBC as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the staff at the Finance Shared Services Group at Downturn Toronto are very friendly, simple and humble. The Senior Executive are not left; they treat both contract and full staff the same. Good work environment.

    Cons

    Some very simple benefits are not available to contract staff. Take for instance discounted children party ticket where made available to only full staff. This to me was also the height of discrimination. Children party ticket!!!!.

    Advice to Management

    Very few top executives indirectly discriminate among people working in their group.
