    I worked at CIBC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Decent compensation
    - Free coffee / tea
    - Downtown Toronto
    - 9-5 culture

    Cons

    - Culture of 'busy bodies' that backstab people. Trying to get colleagues fired seems to be a hobby of most people at this organization.
    - Inflated job titles. Someone who would be called a Manager somewhere else is called a Director at CIBC. A Sr. Consultant is a Sr. Manager. This has caused small people to feel they are big and important. They feel entitled to be respected and get upset when new hires don't respect a 27 year old "Sr. Mgr". Ridiculous.
    - Sr. Leadership are incredibly two faced and rule by intimidation. Being honest with your own manager is career suicide at this place.

    Advice to Management

    - Stop being so incompetent. If you can't copy paste from Excel to PowerPoint - maybe you shouldn't be a "Sr. Director".
    - If you don't trust your own team ... who are you going to trust?
