    Great co-workers, excellent direct supervision, total compensation package is alright, benefits are sufficient, training is fast paced with expected results but that also comes with the industry standard.

    Pros

    BMO bank makes sure that customers are not just numbers to sell them any products. I am satisfied being a banker but they keep increasing the goals so a banker make less commission.

    Cons

    No growth. Management keeps increasing the goals. Banker makes thinner & thinner commissions. Not lot of career advancement

    Advice to Management

    No career opportunities. Management keeps increasing the goals.

    Pros

    Great benefits. International offices. College tuition reimbursement. Great coworkers

    Cons

    Always raising goals, trying to make it hard to get paid on bonus and raising goal to 110% in order to get paid incentive is unfair. Lowering sales points structure value, and doing call nights every week. It's stressful and becoming very product pushy bank. Trying to sell products to clients that they don't need.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with this product pushing bank and people need life and have some balance between life and work.
