Very nice people and good place to work if you want a suburban/family lifestyle.

Portfolio Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at BMO Financial Group

ProsWhile the salary seem to be lower, the benefits are above average and geared towards those with a family. The people at BMO are very nice, people you would like to have as your neighbors.

ConsThe Canadian management does not seem to accurately value US operations or staff. While the employees are nice, they don't seem to be the cream of the crop and seem more accepting of the status quo than superior performance. There was more emphasis on doing it "there way" instead of a better way.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't confuse the recent bank stock price performance with superior operations and strategy. The limited competition between the few Canadian banks and elevated commodity prices are more likely to account for how Canadian banks outperform US banks. The culture of the bank was to avoid risk and not manage risk, which frequently put bank customers at an unwarranted disadvantage as a bank customer.
