    Pros

    The Boston Private Wealth Management office has nice, helpful people to work with. If you are interested in working in another department it is received well.

    The Private Wealth Management office now belongs to a much larger operation. It no longer feel like a boutique firm for high net worth clients.

    I worked at CIBC full-time

    Pros

    In NY, senior management are accessible and most of the people are pretty friendly. Hours are reasonable. Benefits are average for the industry.

    Cons

    Conservative and myopic Canadian management, combined with constant strategy changes and poor communication, creates frustration in NY. In the >5yrs I was there, not one women on the trading floor was promoted to an MD. Limited promotional or lateral opportunities in general; preference was to hire externally at the more senior level. Aggressive HR.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, respect and encourage your employees. People can see through the warm and fuzzy BS act.
