A fairly organized company
Supervisor /Learning Development Specialist (Former Employee), Montréal, QCJanuary 31, 2016
Average. The satellite office was opened in Montreal in July 2015. A great atmosphere however it was the agents and team leads like myself who made it happen. The Toronto office would occasionally come to the site but rarely provide positive feedback. Hence it made it difficult to meet head office expectations.

Lot's of responsibilities, not streamlined processes
Financial Services Manager (Current Employee), British ColumbiaJanuary 2, 2016
There is a lot to do and to keep track of. That means that much of it is drowned in outdated, unnecessarily complicated processes, and micromanagement that is discouraging rather than helpful.

They do try to keep the customer in mind though and they take decent care of employees. Unfortunately systems and processes are frankly annoying and get in the way of productivity.

Senior Analyst - Securitization Fin. & Ops. (Current Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 21, 2015
Pros: I can go to the gym and flexible hours.
Cons: none
One thing I learned in my work is to be able to adapt to change. My work is not limited to just one type of routinary work but rather a combination of different work in accounting and finance, from the daily and monthly accounting, financial and investor reporting, to getting involved in a project.

Dissatisfactory
Business Analyst (Current Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 1, 2015
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.

Pros: Amazing team
Cons: Location
Work is always enjoyable. I love what i do here, so i look forward to coming in everyday. My targets are high but I surpass it, and that motivates me to keep doing what I am doing. Although we look at numbers, what keeps me going the most is customer satisfaction.
