    Pros

    Job security and some good people depending on the team.

    Cons

    Limited career progression opportunities and awful technology.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for young talent to progress quickly. Having essentially the same job description for the first 5 years is no way to progress.

    I have been working at BMO Harris Bank part-time

    Pros

    Learned a lot about banking with them. The coworkers are usually friendly and willing to help. Managers will notice you and ask if you need any help as far as moving to a new position.

    Cons

    Moving into a better position seems nearly impossible. If you aren't the world's best banking product salesperson you won't be considered for a new position. They will help you find positions, but you won't get them because of sales.

    Advice to Management

    You say you are customer service focused, but most decisions by the company don't reflect that. You only benefit customers who are new and coming from other banks, and wonder why we are losing customers. Focus on all customers, not just the new ones.
