Not great but pretty good overall
VP in Technology (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 21 February 2019
Company as a whole is pretty good. Montreal salaries are above average but far from top notch! Good benefits!
Total job insecurity as in most Wall Street banks! Promotions are quite hard so better negotiate what you want salary/position-wise upfront!
Politics wins 100% of the time over simply prudent/rational decisions.
As in most big companies meaningful change is slow and painful.
Senior management is far from tech savvy which is the least to say annoying for younger generations which they so claim they want to win to come and stay at the company... it's a dinosaur of a company basically that way despite of it having almost any old & new technology you can think of. So yes, they have the tech, it's just not being used to its potential due to politics, misunderstanding of how to be used, how quickly to be deployed, etc.
Diversity candidates are a major priority and actively sought out sometimes at expense of qualifications even...
Good name on your CV, smart colleagues
weak management, politics, bureaucracy
