BMO Commercial Banking Analyst Development Program

Hi all, I wanted to ask you guys what you think of commercial banking and what the exit opportunities are. I'm currently interested in the role because it provides a good stepping stone route into corporate banking. For those who work in commercial banking, what are base pay and bonuses like? What are the hours? What kind of financial modeling does the role entail? Lastly, for those of you who made the switch from commercial banking to corporate banking or even to investment banking, how did you do it?
