Analyst Process Improvement International Markets (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, Ontario13 October 2017
The company does not value family life or advancement . Company bottom line is more important than employee work life balance. I guess it is important to be hired at the right level to be valued at this bank

Micro managed controlling environment
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 October 2017
Management is very stingy with details and does not contribute to forward movement of employees.
Consistently re-organzing the departments
Reactive environment rather than proactive leader
More inclined to deliver quickly rather than effectively, causing a lot of correction and "day 2" activity, increasing both cost and timeline
Pros
environment is friendly and tech advanced
Cons
poor management systems and executive decision making

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON3 October 2017
This branch is located in a community neighborhood with an ample numbers of customers, usually it goes busy. everyday we learn different things sometime technical sometime in term of customer service. The branch works together for a common goal and that is to exceed customer expectations. Now the trend of online banking is setting almost everywhere so when the branch got dead that the hardest part working in the branch, other than everything we do we enjoy.

Worked during Y2K data migration. There seemed to be a clear delineation at the time between BMO and Nesbitt Burns. I'm sure things have changed a tonne since I was there.
