    Learned a lot

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company pays very well and management was great to employees. The company believes in accountability and holds employees responsible for their own work.

    ConsThere are no real cons besides the typical responses. I really loved working for the company and loved my manager.

    Since the transition of M&I and BMO, I have had all positive experiences.

    Credit Analyst (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsBMO has a very sound background for their Commercial Banking teams. There is a reason why M&I failed and BMO came in to take over the company. I can definitely see BMO implementing some profitable ideas into the old M&I standards which will bring in new profitable business.

    ConsThe only downside that I have experienced with BMO is the corporate structure, being so large, can make the recruiting and hiring process a lengthy one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your same conservative approach and backgrounds but trust the employees to go out and do their best to bring in new business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
