A great place to work, however, there is no job security. Manage is amazing; kind, helpful, and passionate about their work. A lot of professionals working here, but some people can act immature.

Long hours, rude customers

expérience chez BMO
à titre d'analyste (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC15 September 2017
J'ai adoré travailler pour BMO pendant 3 années consécutives. Je me suis sentie à l'aise autant avec mes collègues que mes dirigeants avec qui je pouvais avoir des discussions ainsi que des coachings pour être amené à toujours me surpasser.

Bank of Montreal is a great place to work.

Wonderful Canadian Bank
Team Lead, Global Product Operations (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 September 2017
BMO is a great Canadian Bank. They provide opportunities to move around the organization. Upper management doesn't really act on concerns of the folks doing the day to day work.

Lame
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 September 2017
The staff that was in charge of the event was very cold and rude. They showed no emotion. That customers that came in we very nice, but I'm sure that's because they wanted to get the free stuff!

great place to work. salary not enough due to the heavy workload and stress that is endured. seems like there are opportunities to advance within the bank, however most opportunities are within the call center.

PM Creative services
Project Manager, Creative Services (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC3 September 2017
Most enjoyable part of the job is the ability to work remotely and the flexibility the job provides in this sense.

Workplace culture is not great - very corporate, and morale is generally low because of the poor wages paid. Also very little is done in terms of bringing the department together from a social perspective. The department does not do much to curb this.
