    I have been working at BMO Financial Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not any I can think of...... I guess it's better than collecting welfare. Maybe.

    Cons

    Employees are totally over worked and under paid. I came in all idealistic and ready to start my career in the corporate world, but soon found out that unless you're willing to sell your soul, kiss ass, and take advantage of little old ladies with big pension cheques, you weren't going anywhere fast. After 5 years of witnessing more and more hypocrisy and underhandedness I just want to warn off anyone thinking of coming to work here. Take my advice, keep your karma clean and find somewhere else to work, otherwise you just might end up hating the person you see in the mirror everyday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to sugar coat your greed as "financial solutions." At least be honest about who you are: A huge corporation of fat cats who have convinced themselves that they "do good" in the world. Instead of telling your employees how great the company is - PROVE IT!
