    Approves of CEO


    - Excellent benefits - Great people - Management actually cares about their employees


    - Way too much unnecessary bureaucracy to achieve major improvements. - Stress is on creating processes and procedures, even when unnecessary. - Structure is overly complex, disorganized, and in a constant state of flux.

    Advice to Management

    So much bureaucracy is costing you a lot of money. Trim down the unnecessary processes.

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at BMO Financial Group (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.


    Crappy, too many interviews, they don't tell you about the job. They ask unrelated questions and try to intimidate you. I have never been with such unprofessional people in my life and I would never want to work there. They women who interviewed me stunk really bad and I almost threw up!.

    I got a better offer somewhere else and all the employees I talked to told me how crappy it is to work there.
