Form Triumphs Over Substance

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I have been working at BMO Financial Group

ProsMost people seem to recognize the importance of work-life balance. Lots of different areas to explore career-wise.

ConsHave seen some improvements in the current leadership, but I still don't get the sense that we've a got a very strong strategic direction. Some of the executives that I've come into contact with seem more intent on making themselves look good in front of their higher-ups than on doing what's best for the best - sort of a triumph of form over substance.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on what's important. The BMO culture has become too bureaucratic and sometimes seems focused on producing the perfect PowerPoint deck rather than on taking care of business.
