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.

In general it is very good place to work. But it depends what is your position and time you should work. Sometimes they dont have enough employee and you should work more than usual.

I had a 47 year career with CIBC. There were many opportunities for me to advance my career starting with my experience at the branch level and continuing with VISA centre where I was so fortunate to be involved in so many aspects of CIBC.

Mangement still thinks traditional ways. Even if you work hard, you can grow gradually. Plenty of scope to learn new things. But you may need to perform really well to prove and show your presence.
Pros
Job security
Cons
Politics and old ways of thinking

Fifty fifty on the overall work culture as it depends on the team you join. Your skills don't matter at all when it comes to progressing, only who likes you or not. If you don't speak up against anything that is going wrong, you are deemed an excellent employee. Most managers have no clue what people management is. Good for internships, nothing else in IT department. Everything is outsourced to vendors. No real learning or work.
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
No growth

I worked at a very good company before starting there and it was very different.All jobs treat you like numbers but there it's the worse and you get fired very quickly or people leave very fast.

For any full timers or manpower contingent workers avoid working at 305 Milner 5th floor Records client service. This specific lady who Is in charge of the team has no knowledge of anything and abuses manpower contingent workers to protect her favourites. Surprised that Cibc as a company has not taken any action to investigate on this lady and surprisingly the president and the director of the team have not notice anything as they are always working downtown. Any manpower contingent workers who get assigned to work for this team I suggest to avoid as there is no growth and no opportunity and this manager takes people’s credit and not give them anything in return.
Pros
None
Cons
Abusive manager

Small and traditional bank, hard to advance careers. I've mostly had pleasant personal interactions management people but it's very group-dependent (just like any other work place). Turn over rate is high due to relatively low salary.
Pros
nice coworkers
Cons
hard to get promoted

Wages are descent in the upper level but the front line staff, first face to face with customers and the referral of potential business staff should be given more training, respected and valued more and definitely paid more.
Pros
Room for advancement
Cons
stressful and competitive environment

Pros
Culture, stability, diversity, package

Once you are working here at the contact centres and try to get out of contact centre job within the same bank it is almost impossible they will either put you in different department call centre or you stay in your position for years even though you are excelling in your role. So unless you want to be stuck on the phones forever this isn’t a really good career path to take

Due to the low hourly pay for CSR's, they can not maintain employees in this position. As well they do not often have full time positions forcing their staff to take other part time work. The benefits, however, are very good, regardless if you are full or part time.
Pros
Advancement if you want to train for the positions
Cons
very poor pay, not a living wage for British Columbia
