    I have been working at BMO Capital Markets full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great resources, exposure to lots of different teams and people, stock options, pay is good, for the most part people are helpful and friendly. Exposure to clients presents lots of opportunities and networking

    Cons

    - Extremely bureaucratic, you’re just a # - management protects people who have been there a long time regardless of performance - if you have an issue or concern about a situation or employee, everyone will know about it. Management lacks confidentiality and they don’t adhere to any sort of protocal or procedures - don’t trust anyone
