    I worked at MGO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - If you're lucky, you might meet some really great coworkers and Partners
    - If you're lucky, you might get a cool Office Manager who organizes fun events (the con to this pro is that you have to spend time with all the people that don't fit into the category above)
    - I like the 'boring accountants' angle
    - There really are some bright people working here, they're just not utilized
    - It filled out my resume well enough to help me get a job I absolutely love

    Cons

    - The structure within the firm is in disarray and they're looking for answers to basic questions that they probably should have worked out at some point within the last couple decades
    - Compensation is dismal
    - Now that the CFO is also heading the HR department, good luck to anyone looking for a raise beyond 2% come July. Seriously, don't bother going the extra mile, you will NOT be rewarded
    - On that note, employee recognition is seriously lacking (but on the bright side, sometimes they say really nice things about people in the email announcing their involuntary departure)
    - Despite the 2 month effort (really, guys?), the new culture & values are still unclear and haven't changed a thing
    - Opportunities for advancement and development are few and far between unless you score an amazing advisor, Manager, and/or Partner.
    - Some associates can become very unpleasant when they've been drinking... and that's not always outside work hours. You've been warned.

    Are you fresh out of college and looking for a great place to begin your career? Do NOT come here.

    Don't quite have your degree yet? Great, the internships and low level positions pay quite well compared to other places. Just don't stick around any longer than you need to.

    Are you mid-upper level looking for a change? Go ahead and take your chances, but be warned that ridiculous financial goals and expectations will be set for you and when you inevitably don't reach them, you will be fired (if you haven't come to your senses and quit yet).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of people have expressed their dissatisfaction to me about MGO (people who I thought were genuinely happy with their jobs). Maybe you should focus on employee satisfaction; If you can accomplish that, you'll see it pay off.
