It is not the right place for everyone

Senior Service Representative (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at BMO Harris Bank N.A. full-time for more than a year

ProsThe people are great to work with. There are a lot of departments to move within. It is a great starting career to gain experience.

ConsThe pay is fairly low across the board by 30% of the market. Vacation time is difficult to take because coverage is taken into account. Sick time is discouraged to be taken and it can not be taken too often in a certain period. Lunch time is strongly discouraged to be taken in its entirety. Month end and quarter end involve long hours. It is difficult to move up. They also go through a lot of restructuring and transferring of employees. They are very cost conscious. The culture is fast paced. Management is very critical of the employees. It seems the same employees are always being recognized. Work and Life balance needs to be managed better. Holiday parties and employee appreciation has been cut back.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey should make their pay fair and competitive.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It has its ups and downs; while there are great benefits for employees, hierarchy makes it begrudging.

Pros: Easy company to get to know your coworkers; employee benefits… Cons: Compensation for "low-level" employees is very unfair, especially in comparison… Advice to Senior Management: Consider restructuring the compensation plan and salary system for service… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
