Same as HSBC
Financial Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB5 December 2016
come across many opporutnities and challenges every day I am at work. It's fun to deal with the unexpected daily, it makes the job so interesting and the learnings tremendous as I deal with each unexpecetd event as it unfolds.
I have a team who is passionate and motivated and we face our challenges together.
Leadership is about having fun while firm as well. Its about creating an environment where you walk through the door every morning and your excited for the day to begin and look forward to the highs and lows.
I thourougly enjoy every day with my team and look forward to the learnings each and every day.
Pros
Same as previuos with HSBC

very good work atmosphere
Sr.Quality Analyst (Former Employee) –  North York, ON29 November 2016
My typical day at work always started with looking forward to go to work as I loved working at BMO. I have learned to work independently while being in the team. Management was very good which was always liberal to take decisions independently valuing my knowledge. The most enjoyable part of the job is that this project was new and it was good to learn something new.

There is no job security in BMO; i guess it comes with the industry.
Management has good intentions but seems to never act upon them.
Great employee banking.

Great Learning Experience with ongoing support and learning
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB14 November 2016
Management is very supportive, and keep a close eye on ongoing CSR and customer activity. Discreetly appear to provide support to team with challenging customer situations.
Learning and changes are constant in the banking world. Team and management work well together to ensure all are in the loop.
Obtaining sales targets can be very challenging.
Most challenging learning experience of my career to date. Hard to believe how much is required behind the scenes - tons of pressure to get the online learning completed quickly to be an active CSR.
Pros
Annual bonuses
Cons
Meeting sales targets required to determine wage increase rate

you are a cog in a very very large machine
