      Pros

      People who have no ambition will enjoy working here

      Cons

      Pay is way under the industry average, there are really no benefits besides over priced insurance that offers the worst coverage because CIBC negotiated crappy coverage. Every other bank offers a myriad of excellent benefits but not CIBC. Poor processes, too much bureaucracy, no one seems to know what they are doing or care, HIGH turnover. No idea what the managers do all day. Information is not distributed.

      Cibc is working to enhance its diversity and inclusion efforts and at times work can be hectic due to the number of tasks/deadlines/available resources.

      Male dominated so there’s not many advancement opportunities available to the women. They don’t try to hide their special treatment towards the males either. The pay gap is pretty large.
