UNIX Technical Analyst - GCC UNIX (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 December 2016
As a coop student the team I was with was very helpful and allowed me to experience and gain skills in the UNIX administration field. MY typical day was to do account maintenance on UNIX based servers and to troubleshoot issues with application teams.
Pros
For a coop it was a good learning experience

Clsoed off the entire unit

They are trying to be more modern and friendly towards change and better culture, but it's still has a long way to go.

Not much growth depend on the project you are working on.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB5 December 2016
The job itself was great, solid stable hours, challenging and fast-paced environment, and a nice team to work with.
Management at the branch I worked at was lacking a lot. There was a lot of bullying going on, and a lack of guidance at times when it comes to sales tactics and new practices. The way that employees were treated left me disheartened and looking for something else, anywhere else. I'm sure many other branches were great and totally different, but that is my experience.
Pros
Generous with hours, flexible schedule, good team work
Cons

Good hours and STATs off.
Senior Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Alberta2 December 2016
Good hours if you work full time. Don't expect to get more hours if you only work part time and it's when they work best for CIBC not the employee. Programs are glitchy and time consuming because you have to use 5 programs at once to get something done. Training that you do has nothing to do with the job itself, so much more to it. Don't give you the tools to do your job properly and hardly any support. Good thing is you get STAT's off and decent hours. The targets are hard to meet unless you work in a busy centre, they don't take your area into consideration. Problem is the company is too big so to get one thing done it takes 10 years because it has to go through so many people for approval which doesn't work very well. You have to be the right type of person for you to succeed and enjoy your job at CIBC. The most enjoyable part of the job is the client's and if you work with great people.
Pros
If you work full time, hour lunch, STATS off. Normal 8-5 job for the most part
Cons
Unorganized, no advancement, poor wage, no incentives unless you enjoy getting pens.

Contents Verification Clerk (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC28 November 2016
The best part of this job was that I could listen to my Ipod during work. The work was simple and easy, but often very repetitive which made the day go by slow.

Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON24 November 2016
Had the opportunity to work on a number of new and exciting projects. The management team is supportive and continually looking to advance. It is a very hard-working environment with changing priorities; but the compensation and benefits account for the effort.

Senior Database/ETL Developer (Current Employee) –  55 Yonge Street24 November 2016
It depends on the team but I had a good team to work.

Good Work-From-Home options.

Hardest part - Office desk space reservation system. You don't get a desk at all times.

Good overall, solid work culture. Management can be hit or miss. Sales targets and sales pressure are constant although individual managers can make a big difference in this area.

Pros
Independent work environment, great support structure.

Large numbers of processes in place.

Mortgage Processing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 November 2016
Great work environment. However many people are on contract and not full time employees so salary and benefits are lacking. I don't think me or my coworkers would stay if there were more options. But great management and good work environment.

Re-organization without sufficient notice!
Technical Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 November 2016
If you're an independent contractor, avoid this company like the plague.

Although they claim to be 'like a family', it is dysfunctional at best. After they recently underwent a reorganization, they started to chip away at the contractors by low-balling them when hired and then demanding they accept a pay cut to remain on the 'selected' list.

They appear to be speaking from both sides of their collective mouths.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Secrecy and lack of transparency.

Pros
Extremely Flexible
