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

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity to advance up through the company if you are willing to put the work in and build relationships with your managers and market presidents.

    Cons

    Some bankers here are very complacent which customers notice and hurts overall experience with bank.

    Former Employee - Personal Banker Associate in Buffalo Grove, IL

    I worked at BMO Harris Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I began work in the contact center and the environment was very friendly and very team oriented. The company does a lot for the community and keeps everyone involved. Your coworkers may all come from different backgrounds and you will learn new skills and ideas from them. Managers are there to listen to your goals and where you want to be in the company and they will allow you to shadow new positions and help you reach those goals. New Naperville IL office was phenomenal and before leaving the company that had begun a work from home option for some positions which was great for many employees.

    Cons

    Some of the products BMO Harris offers are not the best so you do have irate customers often. As well it makes it a bit more difficult for someone who may not be the best at sales to refer less than mediocre products. Some of the "team leads" were not very useful. and you may be switched from manager to manager often.
