    Compensation was good but not enough. Behind the shiny facade is a significant lack of resources and quirky culture.

    I worked at M Financial Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very intelligent, capable employees that provide a high level of service considering the lack of adequate tools to do their jobs. Relatively small company. Great pay, benefits. Very nice offices in the Pearl District. My coworkers are the reason I stayed as long as I did.

    Cons

    The company likens itself to a country club for independent financial services firms and management is of the mindset that it is an absolute privilege to work there. Very little opportunity for upward or even lateral mobility. In my experience, managers were not well equipped to lead people and rarely helped to develop employees. Lack of mobility has led to the loss of skilled, experienced employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake up middle management and listen to your employees. Low accountablity has made them complacent. Current management is stuck in the past. You have an incredibly intelligent and dynamic workforce...use them and their ideas to modernize your culture. Find ways to grow and keep experienced talent, otherwise you'll lose them and the relationships they've built with your independent offices.

    I have been working at M Financial Group

    Pros

    A beautiful work place where everyone is dedicated to their jobs,

    Cons

    A few hard to work with personalities in each dept that make the every day experience unpleasant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't turn a blind eye to the ill natured employees just because they show up every day. They make the good people leave.
