    I have been working at MGO full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    In my experience so far, there are opportunities for growth and to prove yourself professionally. This is an environment where employees are given resources to receive help, but won't get their hands held. If you're ambitious and are motivated to shine, MGO would be a great place to prove yourself. Several promotions were given out this past July as well as raises, so it feels good to know that your efforts are rewarded professionally and monetarily. I really enjoy everyone I work with. The partners and employees have welcomed me and I have already developed strong relationships with several people here.

    Cons

    The benefits could be better but I hear that is being worked on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to keep giving continuous feedback and work on more goal setting with employees. Extra guidance always helps when trying to further your career.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at MGO in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got the opportunity to interview with various partners in multiple offices. People were easy to talk to and accessible by email and phone after our initial in person interview. It is clear that leaders of the organization are very passionate about their contributions to the organization and very good client servers. After meeting with people in multiple offices it was clear that the firm lives the one focus firm. I interviewed and worked in other firms nothing that other firms that talk about one firm focus but do not even get closed to living to that standard.
