Generally a great environment to be in although you do see certain individuals in management positions demonstrating favoritism and this never seems to get addressed. Work life balance is excellent and the overall culture is great, though it becomes increasingly difficult to continue working for CWB, when their salaries cannot seem to keep up with rising cost of living. Pay is way under market. Existing employees are moving over to other FIs and in some circumstances taking a lower level position and still receiving a noticeable increase to their base pay.
A great work environment and exciting projects to work on. Working beyond business hours is not expected allowing me to keep work at work. My coworkers are great and the work for projects is reasonably divided amongst team members.
They were a company that was rated extremely high for corporate culture. Everyone plays the part, but you see and feel how stressed they are. Their is no time for training and support. You then find yourself sucked into the work life Imbalance… I however chose my family and health. Found a new job! Best decision I made, not to suffer my worth.
Working for CWB can be an interesting experience. Every branch does things differently with little consistency even right up to what individual roles are required to do. In some cases an employee has a portfolio of clients and another of the same role has none. The work flows are rarely fair or equal resulting in some being paid unfairly for their level of work. Management often seems to not understand the market both with employee retention and clientele wants. Being on a good team can make it a wonderful place with a sense of purpose for the staff. But having a poor manager can gut a team with a 300% turnover increase where tenure changes from 10+ year averages to less than 3 for the staffing with no oversight or questions asked other than 'are you looking for a new job?' It is difficult to not be biased but a poor manager can exhaust an employees will to want to stay. It is unfortunate that whether this is a good company is based on branch to branch and department to department as there is little communication and a poor leader results in new hires not being trained as there is no corporate standard and that is left to branch and department discretion leading to people of the same positions being assigned different tasks and not knowing if what they're doing makes sense for their role.
Overall this is a good place to be but there is only so much growth. Management is good and understanding. Compensation could be better yet its within market average
