Great place to grow and develop as a young professional; works with very notable, high profile, and reputable Canadian clients . Very team-oriented culture. Management open and very approachable — both with respect to day-to-day operations and with to long-term growth initiatives.

CIBC is a fast-paced company to work. Employees need to work effectively in a competetive area. Sales are very important and target-based appraisal can help anybody to move fast.

I worked as a call center representative for the care department for credit card. If you love yourself enough and care about your health, do me a favor and do not work for them. It is an incredibly stressful environment. People were always on sick leave and as a results we were under staffed. Even managers would quit and would give the excuse that they found a better position in the company

Learned a lot about banking, finances, and corporate environment. Lots of training resources, but not as much coaching as there could be. I found that the high turnover of branch staff led to most of my job dissatisfaction. The fact that we were constantly training new hires, also meant that the higher level servicing tasks fell to the longest tenured employee. It was difficult to maintain sales excellence while also doing more than your fair share of non-revenue generating tasks. That said, I have been out of the branch environment for 4 years. I very much have enjoyed working in the Mobile Advice channel.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
high turnover and understaffing

Great place to work. Management is always helpful, encouraging and supportive. Staff is well diversified and friendly. Work hours are reasonable although some days are longer than others. Would be nice to have a better salary considering the responsibilities but benefits and pension are great.
Pros
Friendly
Cons
Can be stressful

Working at CIBC is HORRIBLE. Right out of the gates, it takes a couple months to start working once you've been hired. Then their training program is a joke. They push you through is as fast as possible, and throw you to the wolves to get chewed up and spit out. Clients scream at employees all day - everyday. Once again, I'll blame this on the training program leaving everybody to be incompetent. There is never any staff at locations, because everyone quits!!! And because everyone quits there is way to much work to do with no staff. This is what I was told when I started working a bunch of overtime, in order to complete my work.... "If you come in early, or stay late you cannot put in the overtime hours. Legally we have to pay you, but if you claim it then we won't let you stay". SO, not only am i trying to to the job for 3 employees (and I'm getting the same god awful pay), but not I'm not allowed to claim the overtime. They would rather sacrifice the clients and employees happiness, then spare a few extra dollars from the billions they make.

Collaborative work environment. Amazing team work. Supportive superiors.

Team is open to ideas and discussions. Leadership does not have a closed mindset.

It’s a Sexually Charged, Abusive, Racist environment! Management doesn’t care, they even get promoted! People just watch me get bullied and yelled at. HR protects management! In the interview I was asked if I mind if “people swear, because there will be a lot of it” My boss, was a INSANE and would ask me to run his errands for him, wait for personal packages so I couldn’t go home on time.
Cons
Racist environment, viable minorities are IT or support staff, Long hours

The internal structure is so competitive that each location competes with another. This means the employees are pushed harder to perform with little recognition.
Little training, little support.
Pros
Resume would look good
Cons
Long hours, no overtime pay untrained managers

Good and Steady role with career training and good benefits. Management is flexible and promotes development of employees. Pay is somewhat competitive but not in line with some of the other banks on the street.

A good and healthy working environment with some really nice people. Certain teams are managed by people with poor skills and who have their
preferences.
