I have been working at BMO Harris Bank N.A. full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Easy to understand products, sales goals are attainable, flexible schedule with managers, laid back atmosphere, community bank feel, customer oriented, customer appreciation days, well established bank, appropriate dress code

Cons

Dated technology, slow response time from other departments, lack of communication, slow systems, old practices, not everything is "streamlined" which could make things easier to have everything in one system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication is key! Always keep your staffed informed of every detail of what is going on. Management needs to be aware of people who might have missed a meeting or a discussion that could really benefit from a follow up one-on-one.

    Former Employee - Personal Banker in Shawnee, KS (US)

    I worked at BMO Harris Bank N.A. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company's compensation & benefits are great and above market average. The company believes in diversity so you get to work with all walks of the life.

    Cons

    Management is focus more on quaintly rather than quality. The communication between branch employees and management is terrible. Everything has shifted from relationship building to an aggressive sales culture. The company believes in "product pushing" and offering services/products to customers who may not need them. The turnover lately has been high in the last couple of months Also, don't let anything happen in your life because you simply management doesn't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to branch employees and show some type of interest. Quit looking at numbers and focus on progress.

    It's a bank

    I worked at BMO Harris Bank N.A. part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a teller, you aren't responsible for much of anything. For instance, the chain of command dictates that if anything would go seriously wrong with a transaction (wire transfer for instance), the person approving said transaction will be responsible for it.

    Cons

    The job is monotonous, you will not be challenged and there is little in the way of excitement. You're unlikely to move upward without a preferred degree and even if you do advance, I have heard the compensation is less than optimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and listen to employees with ideas to share - no matter how low on the totem pole.
