I worked at BMO Capital Markets full-time (More than 10 years)
A great place to work for a capital market, investment bank or commercial bank professional looking for an organization that is client oriented with a great culture. The organization has a Canadian/US Midwest orientation runs a strong credit driven, financial sound balance sheet - focused on client and customer satisfaction and service across the organization. Great diversity program at all parts of the bank. Commitment to diversity comes from the top down and is run by employees.
Collaborative group decision while inclusive slows down many business and HR decisions and creates frustrations. There is an inconsistency of management talent across the organization. Employee experience is within the organization highly dependent on managers. I was fortunate to work for and with many of the best managers in the organization.
Advice to Management
Evaluate management and HR functions and administrative policies against concrete objectives. Set up a robust training program for management and leadership. Set up a robust mentoring/career program for junior talent and mid-career professionals. And make it a mandatory part of everyone's job description. Develop and cultivate your amazing, talented employee base!
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at BMO Capital Markets in September 2017.
I had a 30 minute phone interview. I applied randomly on my college career site, then randomly got a phone interview. I was very unprepared, so it was difficult, but objectively it wasn't too bad.
