    I have been working at CIBC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people- as an intern I have been able to talk to everyone from a normal worker to executive. In addition people truly care about your progress, and CIBC makes sure as an intern you are reaching your objectives. Great work environment- open office environment designed for friendliness

    Cons

    Lack of Diversity- Like most financial institutions they are the same "type". In addition they do not like hiring non-business majors

    Pros

    Decent benefits, great pay, and amazing coworkers. New ideas are usually encouraged.

    Cons

    There is no accountability with poor employees or managers. A manager can have a reputation of being very verbally abusive and have 4 people (out of their team of 9) leave in the past year because of their abusive management style and HR won't do anything about it. The Bank continues to lose great employees because of the lack of action by HR. The lack of accountability extends to IT where employees have easily lost 2 weeks each of work in the last year due to IT issues. Email was down for 4 days in December. Like how does that even happen at a company of this size? The work environment is super bland since someone had the brilliant idea to paint EVERYTHING beige. Bathrooms are cramped on some floors and some people tend to miss the toilets, quite regularly. It's quite sad... and messy. The bathrooms are also often out of toilet paper and paper towels, at least once a week.
