Vault Verdict

BMO Capital Markets is looking for hardworking, intelligent, technically capable candidates. Interns with the firm are treated like full-time analysts, getting access to live deals, mentors, and networking opportunities. Full-time junior bankers work on high-quality assignments, and have access to formal and informal mentorship opportunities, as well as internal mobility opportunities. In addition, promotions paths are clearly defined.

Insiders rave about BMO’s culture, and a healthy work/balance can be achieved. However, lean deal teams, which offer great experience, can mean heavy workloads at times.

Employee Reviews

  • “Based on experiences from friends at independent advisory, bulge bracket, and other middle-market banks, I truly don’t think there is a bank that has a better combination of work/life balance, total compensation, and the ability to work interesting transactions than BMO.”

  •  “The culture itself is very good. People tend to be easy to get along with and willing to take the time to show new hires the ropes. However, work/life balance is still not great, though probably better than at most other banks and that is just a part of being in IB.”

  •  “Lean deal teams mean significantly fewer concerns than competitors around self-preservation/politics with respect to layoffs amidst a challenging market backdrop. However, busy times offer limited genuine work/life balance, as work ‘lift’ is spread across fewer shoulders than at large competitors.”

  • “BMO has an incredible culture that is hands-down better than any other bank on the Street.”
