Research and Marketing Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 December 2017
Typical day consisted of cold calling and client prospecting. Sometimes tedious but good at building solid work ethic. Advancement very competitive and in some cases non existent. Poor pay but exciting environment,

Being a FSM is very stressful, there's simply endless target to meet while the capacity is not there. We have to understand all aspects of accounts, personal lending and small business lending, deceased account, investments and commercial accounts. If the target cannot be met, there's tons of coaching and we can get scolded easily. Of course there's micro-management. Nowadays, BMO is trying to promote digitization while the capacity is not there yet.
micro-management, constant over time working without pay if target is not met
