    I worked at M Financial Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    M is full of very smart, talented people who are really passionate about the work they do. It was a joy to go to work with other like-minded, hard-working people on a daily basis. Yeah, there were a few quirky personalities, but overall I was impressed by how everyone really is a nice, good person who cares about their co-workers. The CEO is an amazing person, incredibly smart but also down-to-earth and caring. M was worlds different than the hectic, cut-throat culture I came from. It is a really "flat" organization, which means there are not a ton of opportunities to mover up. But, the people I worked with who were hard workers and had innovative ideas advanced and got a lot of positive attention. Also, the company I was at before had no work/life balance...people were super competitive about working very long hours, pulling all-nighters, not taking vacations in years, etc. What a bunch of b.s.! M people work hard but also know when to call it a night and go home, or to the gym, or to their kid's ball game. I was probably working 60+ hour weeks in public accounting most of the year and at M I worked less than 50 except during Q and Y/E close. The benefits were great - they paid the entire premium for my health care, good time off amount, nice match on 401(k) contributions, especially when profits were high (which they were for most of my 8 years there) and they gave an extra match. Also, they pay for parking in the Pearl! How cool is that? They also throw great parties...I was at first shocked at the costume contest at Halloween and the regular all-team meetings with snacks and beer - I thought it was going to be a more snooty environment given the industry. People really get into holidays and events and M pulls out all the stops.

    Cons

    There are some people who have been there forever and don't pull their weight. In my years at M, those became fewer and fewer, but still something that, if addressed, could make it a better company. I would still be there if my husband had not had a great opportunity come up in San Jose!

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to grow people's careers, even if it is not through promotions. Spread more responsibility over a wider group of people. Get rid of some of the cantankerous old-timers who don't pull their weight and whine!
