    I have been working at CIBC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    CIBC has a family environment that is very diverse and accepting of many different backgrounds. There are many opportunities for those who are hard working and client focused to move up and achieve their career goals. Great employee benefits and we make a real difference in our clients lives.

    Cons

    Some of the premises and technology needs updating. In all fairness the industry is changing so quickly that it is expensive to change too quickly. Investment in software and facilities and tools will continue to bring CIBC to the top.
