I worked at BMO Financial Group full-time (more than an year)

Pros

good benefits, 3 weeks paid vacation for full time employees. $29500 starting salary.. great for young people,

Cons

training is not very good if you're in a busy branch you're development comes last.. if you make mistakes you will be reprimanded.. regardless whether it has to do with poor training or not..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take annual employee survey results seriously and conduct branch investigations when results are more negative than positive..

    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
