I worked at BMO Financial Group full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

BMO is one of the largest financial institutions in Canada, hence there maybe many internal opportunities depending on the overall performance of the economy. In this role, you will get some exposure to credit analysis, and potentially have an opportunity to become a relationship manager. However, in general, management wants to hold you on this position for at lease 2 years. If you want to switch your career from personal banking to commercial banking, this will be a good start. There is work life balance in this position, normally from 8 to 5. (Depending on your team too, for my previous team, I sometimes need to work until 11)

Cons

Salary for this position is low, starting 39k. I don't know other people in the same position in different financial institutions, so I can't compare. The absolute value to me is low.

Advice to Management

Increase salary.

    I worked at BMO Financial Group as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    BMO has the name, having BMO listed in your resume isn't a bad thing, and the entry level job tasks are quite easy. My coworkers were mostly women with kids so they tend to be nice.

    Cons

    The tasks are endless, you have to work like a robot. Everything is so repetitive and you have to stare at the computer screen all day long. In the long run the job is very tiring and boring.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hire more people or update BMO's information system to let workers complete the tasks more effectively and have an easier time.
