    I worked at CIBC full-time (more than 8 years)


    Large organization where you can move around for experience.


    Internal senior promotions are very difficult to achieve. CIBC likes to hire outside for senior management and executive levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more work and balance programs. Not every employee can start at 8:30am/ jobshare programs/ work from home a couple of days program ... other organizations have established good programs for work flexibility, CIBC is far behind.
