    I have been working at BMO Harris Bank (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Nice Match on 401k, dollar for dollar up to 5%
    Profit Sharing
    Bonus plan
    Work independently, you are pretty much left alone to do you job.

    Cons

    Banks never tend to use bleeding or leading edge technology
    Work heath care was better before ObamaCare, now it costs more out of pocket.
    Takes a long time for things to get done.
    Really not a lot of opportunity for advancement
    No job progression model for jobs, if there is it has never been shared with the employees.
    Company is good with project planning, execution is another story. But its getting better.

    Advice to Management

    C level always talks about reducing costs and expenses, yet who ever orders hardware in Canada sends them with unnecessary equipment.
    If you a technical resource on a project, before any hardware is ordered, we should have to approve the order before it is placed. This could save a lot of wasted money.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BMO Harris Bank (Milwaukee, WI).

    Interview

    I received a phone call from a recruiter who later scheduled a phone interview for me. The phone interview was fairly easy. I was mainly asked about availability, location preference, etc.. I received another call to schedule an in-person interview, which was also fairly easy. Not intimidating at all.
