Targeted Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS21 April 2016
CIBC can be a good employer, however, not too much room for advancement, management is inexperienced and the environment is very stressful. The things they do well: Pay well, Great benefits, Stock purchase plan and training is one of the best i've been through at any company.

Fast paced organisation with lots of growth opportunity
FINANCIAL ADVISOR (Current Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC19 April 2016
Great place to work...growth opportunity but lots of annoying micro-management, too much pressure to sell which does not make it fun for people who truly love sales and want to build a career out of it.

The focus on sales is a little too much and perhaps management can shift focus on advice and doing what is best for the clients as against focusing on shoving products on them...

Emails are good for communication but i receive more emails in a month than i receive in a year for other top banks i have worked. Most of the emails from management are completely unnecessary but it is the Management and leadership style of increasing the pressure in addition to the excessive conference calls.

The pay is descent and though there is high turnover it also creates growth opportunity. But on the other hand, the fact you have lots of people resigning tells you something about the company. I have had more colleagues resign in CIBC than most places i have worked.
Pros
Great staff
Cons
Pressure of work..late hours, lots of unnecessarry emails and conference calls

The culture of the company is great. An environment where you can build easy, flexible and personalized banking solutions for CIBC clients while broading your technical knowledge and expertise. The chance to network and work with senior leaders across Technology and the bank. A great place to work.

Application Developer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 May 2016
Generally, CIBC is a nice place to work as a developer. Your needs are supported, and generally management listen to new ideas about technology.

The people are good, and the management is fairly easy-going. The work can be hard, but for this you must challenge yourself and always keep asking and looking for new things to do.
Pros
Management, people, work-life balance
Cons
Not the newest technology, typical red-tape overhead

Nice work environment
Senior Fund Accountant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 October 2016
I did cash reconciliation and prepared financial statements for the assigned funds in the morning and review Junior's work; In the afternoon, i usually performed P&L analysis and researched on any discrepancies. When market closed and prices were in, I calculated the net asset value for the assigned funds and then reported to supervisor for review and finally sent to clients.

The manager is very approachable and co-workers are very nice and easy to work with. I have developed my analytical skills and the ability to multi-task. The most enjoyable part of the job is to coordinate with multiple parties to ensure cash and non-cash balances are reconciled, The hardest part of the job is to be both quick and accurate when calculating the net asset value when the market is closed.
