Pros: located on the yonge subway line
Cons: long hours (24 hour weekend work), poor team culture
As an Indian, you would think it would be comfortable working in a team full of them. However, I quickly learned the management and working style in this team is not up to American work standards. The team culture is poor and expectations are unrealistic. You will be lucky to do even 5% actual BA work here. Be prepared to do QA work for the rest of the time with ridiculous hours. At one point, we were told (not even asked) to work 3 weekends in a row. Communicating to the manager was not effective as he just wanted the work done; he was not concerned about job satisfaction. The communication in general is very poor. The manager/team members have spoken disrespectfully and raised their voice. There was no training or job shadowing whatsoever. The manager discouraged from seeking help from team members on a new task assignment as it meant it would be spoon feeding. He hasn't held the team meeting for weeks. FYI - This is specific to a team in the Technology department. BMO is a great brand otherwise, but just make sure to raise these questions if you interview for a position in the Tech dept.
