    I worked at CIBC World Markets as an intern

    Pros

    CIBC pays the most to summer students. Lots of social activities. The student basically has to find work for him or herself, so they can basically do whatever they want.

    Cons

    No a very happy work place. Fairly sexist. Very political, people are power hungry but lazy. You can definitely find your place, but the desk I worked on was pretty bad.

    Advice to Management

    Better prepare trading desks for summer students. What's the point in paying a student $20,000 if you're not even going to give them any work to do?

    Pros

    Some of the good things about working at CIBC World Markets are the great location and valuable experience. Also, if you're not a trader, work-life balance is decent.

    Cons

    Very little to no training is provided, and compensations seems to be lower than comparable banks. There sees to be a relatively high turnover as well.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees; lots of space in improving training and communication, which would potentially increase employee satisfaction, retention and performance.
