It is a wholesome corporation that is trying hard to increase market share and results. It is a respectable company and makes employees proud to work for them,

Career advancement is not made easy nor encouraged. CIBC prefers to keep employees at current positions rather than help them advance onto other positions or departments.

Management needs to encourage career advancement and development. Management also needs to understand that by trying to retain employees by discouraging advancement or by simply blocking them on an HR level is not a profitable outcome for leadership as employees tend to lose interest or motivation.
