Decent place to work
Mortgage processing officer (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON15 August 2018
People were pretty friendly but I felt it was a bit difficult to advance there. I was nice that there were different cultures and background of people so it made it interesting. Work hours and life were pretty flexible at first but they eventually got stricter and was not lenient after my last year there at CIBC. If you like banking and sitting at a desk all day it is a decent place to work otherwise I don't really recommend this place to everyone.
Pros
pretty good benefits
Cons
People you work with can be miserable

sales
COMMERCIAL ACCOUNT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Montreal, Qc, Canada15 August 2018
this is a sales position - financial advising in a bank. Sales targets are unrealistic and management expects very long hours from employees. Benefits are great and salary is good.
Pros
benefits
Cons
sales targets too high

Stepping stone for opportunities in other bank
Sr Manager Finance (Former Employee) –  Toronto15 August 2018
There are lots of nice people to work with in the group. However, not everyone is qualified to do the job, as CIBC is not able to attract the best talents when offering the below-industry-standard pay. On the flip side it will be easier to shine among the team if you are smart and hard-working individual .

Outsourcing initiative causes lots of problem: losing job and experience; Accenture is not performing as it should and cause many accounting errors; retained employee need to cover Accenture's mess in addition to their own assigned work.
Pros
Lot of good people to work with
Cons
high turnover, outsourcing, not competitive pay

Small Canadian Bank that Treats you Decently
Liquidity Management - Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 August 2018
The smallest and most laid-back of Canada'a five major banks. Pay is decent for the amount of work expected if you are in a level six to eight position.

Good to their employees
MOBILE INVESTMENT CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON14 August 2018
CIBC expects very little from their employees to the detriment of the clients. There is a lack of discussion about the clients bigger picture including planning so they can understand what retirement will look like. Lack of accountability and action taken to help everyone at the branch level hurts the momentum of the bank.
Pros
low expectations
Cons
hard to hit targets

Intern
Summer Intern (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 August 2018
As an intern, there is not much responsibility given. There is a lot of room for growth as there are many ways to get involved in different departments - such as shadowing.

Pretty good company to work with
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 August 2018
CIBC is a major bank in Canada. The bank is very lean and mean type, especially at lower levels. They treat the employees well and have good work ethics, professional behavior etc. They will find ways for more efficiency, either by technology or by outsourcing etc. Somehow, the bank has not done as well as other major Canadian banks over the years, however, that could change.
