    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BMO Financial Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Bank account and credit card interest rate benefits. Salary and bonus structure on par with others.

    Cons

    Massive restructuring and organization change in technology has lead to confused and overworked staff. Talk of transformational change and productivity seeming lead to layoffs and new executive management.

    Advice to Management

    The talk of growing technology a and increasing its importance within the organization have called short. The M&I acquisition killed and progress to improving systems or structure.
