Administrative Officer (Ancien employé) – Edmonton – 20 juillet 2019
CWB is having a hard time getting with the times, as evidenced by their attempt to freshen up by removing the serifs from their logo. This was a place where the butts in seats mentality ruled, managers were resistant to change and micromanagement was rampant, HR frequently provided misinformation, and everyone I worked with had anxiety problems.
Good benefits, limited overtime
Lack of change management, lots of micromanagement, stuck in their status quo, incompetent management and HR, mouse infestation
Project Manager (Ancien employé) – Edmonton, AB – 1 octobre 2019
CWB cares about their employees and sees everyone as part of the family. They are in a growth cycle for the next several years so job security for performers is all but guaranteed. Because it was a smaller company, the salaries are a bit behind the industry standards for some positions. The benefits are top notch and there are very attractive financial benefits if you decide to move your banking / mortgage with them. Some employees have been there for many, many years which gives great stability for some processes but also can create an environment of 'we don't do that here' on some fronts. Undergoing a lot of change currently - very busy.
Open leadership; family structured culture; equal opportunity employer; growth cycle
Lower than standard salary for some roles; some 'cowboy' work by leaders
Loan Monitoring Specialist (Ancien employé) – Alberta – 19 septembre 2019
Company is going through a lot of changes in recent years to compete with the big 5 banks. Benefits are great, you start with 3 weeks paid vacation and it only goes up from there. There are a lot of long term employees here.
