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

    Pros

    they only have a big name. it's a huge corporation and looks good on your resume. that's all. but it's not worth it.

    Cons

    the majority of the bank employees in software development are from a certain race who have each others' backs and don't do you any good or let you move up if you are not one of them. no room for promotion. no recognition nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This place is rotten down to its roots. As I am sure you know and hence the recent reorgs
