Edmonton now healing
Financial Services Manager (Current Employee), EdmontonJuly 8, 2013
Pros: not many customers at my branch
Cons: lousy morale. no sr leadership vision
Our boss says that things should improve in edmonton as they got rid of the VP and that things should be better now with no VP. Im not sure but maybe as in 3 years here i never seen or met the vp anyways! Manager says at least no more intimidation, yelling and lack of support for Fsm's and CSRs, for being the worst in the country.

We work hard but – more... are always criticized for being the worst bank, lousy productive, and it is tough to work every day for an organization where the president to the vp to the Pbm to the manager and staff are ALWAYS critical and negative that all we do is not as good as TD OR ROYAL OR SCOTIA and its OUR fault for being so lousy.

The culture we hear at every meeting is: BMO is worst bank on many measures and its the staffs fault as we are lazy, stupid and dragging the bank down????

Everyone at our branch is set to quit or look at unionizing so that we can be treated Better! I don't want to work here anymore and don't recommend you do either! – less

It was just awful!
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Toronto, First Canadian PlaceSeptember 19, 2012
Pros: supporting the directors.
Cons: being managed by someone who shouldn't be managing anyone.
Contract job through an agency. Worked in the mergers and acquisitions department. Administrative support to 5 directors and 2 managing directors - they were great. The office manager was nasty, mean and shouldn't have a job managing anyone.

When I was interviewed for the job, I asked questions - what are your expectations of the person knowing their – more... job in full? 6 months just for the basics. 6 days after my poor training, I started to experience the wrath of this person. After a confrontation on the phone with her, I left that day and never returned.

Very poor manager. No one should be treated that way in a job. – less

Lot's of deals. But beware of the politics
Investment Banking Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJune 2, 2012
Pros: deal flow
Cons: politics
As with all investment banks, you work hard and the environment is a bit cut throat. This causes problems though as politics and not performance drives pay and promotion.

Analyst, Equity Derivatives Trading Desk (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 31, 2012
During my time at the equity derivatives desk, I saw financial products that I had read about in textbooks being actually traded, giving me a practical "real world" perspective of what trading derivatives is like.
Working on a trading floor taught me how to better manage my time and my boss'/clients' expectations and meet stringent deadlines by instilling – more... a strong work ethic in me. A sense of urgency while working helped me successfully complete all my assigned projects and daily tasks.
It was a great learning experience and thoroughly satisfying. – less
