      Pros

      My immediate team was always increasingly supportive with any ideas that I had and allowed me a lot of opportunities to work on projects that would normally be assigned to more senior members of the team.

      Cons

      - Open work environment meaning a lot of background noise - Private spaces for meetings and sensitive calls were hard to come by

      Best things about BMO 1). Financial security of a Canadian bank. 2). Management willing to listen to everyone 3). Management (usually) makes you feel like you are part of the team 4). Bonus is quite competitive- and company has paid out the bonus through the financial crisis 5). Career advancement opportunity (until you reach a senior level- than you are SOL) 6). Smaller bank, while offering services of top ten bank 7). Inclusive work environment.

      Cons

      1). Many jobs are in Toronto, if you are not willing to relocate, the jobs choices may be limited 2). Management listens to everyone- decisions can take a while to make 3). Year to year raises are modet 4). Cluture of Canada sometimes clashes with US culture 5). Knowledge of Canadian regulations may be necessary.
