Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"1. Culture is a fail. No regard for the welfare of its employees, especially if you are not from h/o; 2. No empowerment. Everything has to be reviewed by the boss. Too much unhealthy pressure from top management. 3. HR capacity and process is very poor. It took me months to get my backpay after countless follow-ups. HR doesnt respond to emails too. 4. Digital bank but the internal process is very manual. 5. Workspace is not encouraging; very limited space and not enough meeting rooms. 6. Toxic work environment 7. No internal career enhancement 8. No retirement plan"

Executive (Former Employee) says"No work life balance. When working in banks, you should expect to spend yourself to sacrifice your energy and time to focus on work, to stay back late while little you can get in return. The management is pretty hands off. They'd like to push the staff to finish up a lot of works in a short time by hook or by crook. Co-workers are some team players but some just like to complaint without doing nothing. Working in banking industry is supposed to be the most enjoyable things in life but it becomes miserable especially for the contract staff when the contract is ended without strong and valid reason. Therefore, no career enhancement is promoted in CIMB.Good working environmentLack of career enhancement opportunity, political issue"
CLERICAL (Current Employee) says"- My typical day at work is cannot be promoted. - I learned that if you done well in your job is not compulsory you can be promoted by your supervisor. - My management always bias to their employees, especially to clerical and non clerical staff. - My co-worker also same fate - The hardest part of my job is you easy can get scold, threatening and four letter word from customer went you asking for payment. - The most enjoyable part of my job is customer appreciate because I help them the solution how to manage their debt payment also my prayer time.Can prayer and salary on timeFor clerical no vehicle and sundry loan"
Telesales Executive (Former Employee) says"Once youve entered this Plaza Pantai building on level 15, say goodbye to your good life. As a banker and a telesales, over here you dont have any further knowledge about banking and finance. You can try to ask your manager and they will answer "that is not necessary for you to know, you just need to deliver the number. Thats all".. Is it fair? Well, that is what we've been facing. Racist? Hahaha goodluck on being good. Bias? Goodluck again. Suggested? Nahhh go for other bank. Sallary? Okay lah if you can do well.Medical cardEven if you take Annual Leave, that one will be questionable."

Annoyed Customer says"CIMB straight up gives away your data to its sales agents/ telemarketers to push you to buy its unit trusts products. I specifically unchecked the option to receive marketing communication, and also emailed them. But the calls haven\'t stopped. And another the scary thing is the first call happened after I transferred a considerable sum into my account. That\'s super creepy, as if they\'re peeping into my account to sell a product. I have moved out my money since, and waiting for the early account closure period to lapse, then I\'m fucking done with it. Clowns In Malaysia Bank (CIMB) !"
Lily says"Such a big nuinsance. Making a big deal just to open a simple savings account. Made me wait for more than 2 hours for nothing. Bluntly rejected my application and said \"come back another day\". Why? Just because my university offer letter wasnt dated my exact intake. Firstly, for private universities, its almost impossible for that to happen. You register early, you get your offer letter earlier. The thing is, they took my offer letter 2 hours earlier while I was waiting. The employee could have easily checked tge dates if its such a big issue. Why did they even collect my letter earlier then? To just stack it on a table? Just doing things without thinking. Unefficiency on another level. Employee was also so rude to me. Then if I go back, they\'ll find another tiny issue to reject nr with and it goes on. How many hours do I have to waste just open an account?"
Fatim says"They have no idea about their policies. I lost my debit card and cannot get a replacement because they are confused if I have to go to home branch or any branch. Customer service tells me any branch. When I went to Cyberjaya branch they said go to home branch. Worst experience ever. "
