With a Walk Score of 100, our location in the heart of downtown Portland in the Pearl District couldn’t be better. Here are the top 10 things you’ll love about working at M Financial Plaza:

Lobby area overlooking the Pearl District and Fremont Bridge
  1. With team members commuting to work from all over the Portland Metro area, our location is ideal with easy access to I-405, I-5, and I-84 freeways.
  2. Plenty of happy hour options are available: Henry’s, Deschutes, Fat Head’s, 10 Barrel, Rogue, and Bridgeport… need we say more?
  3. You never have to go far for a coffee with Starbucks, Peet’s, and Stumptown Coffee Roasters all within a few blocks.  And if you don’t feel like venturing out, you can brew your own at the office coffee bar.undefined

  4. You can say you work in an energy efficient building. M Financial Plaza is LEED Gold certified.
  5. You have a free place to park on the weekends. M Financial offers paid parking to full-time team members. When the weekend rolls around, park in the underground parking garage, available 24/7.
  6. An abundance of lunch options are just a few steps away, including the nation’s largest concentration of food carts. The hardest part is picking one! If you prefer to brown bag it, you can visit with colleagues in the kitchen seating area or on sunny days, eat al fresco on the balcony.undefined
    Community lunch room
  7. Combine your daily commute with a workout! M Financial Plaza has secure bike storage, showers, and lockers.
  8. Shop until your heart’s content. The Pearl and West End neighborhoods host many boutiques and shops. In addition, Nordstrom, Macy’s and Pioneer Place are within walking distance.  
  9. Catch any Portland Streetcar within a two-block radius.
  10. Walk to Providence Park, home of the Timbers and Thorns. Not a soccer fan? The Blazers and Winterhawks play at the Moda Center, easily accessible with public transportation.

At M Financial Group, we pull out all the stops for our Halloween celebration and this year was no exception! The children of M Financial team members had the opportunity to dress in their costumes and trick or treat around the office. The following day, team members donned incredible costumes, played Halloween trivia, decorated pumpkins, and had a great time with one another at the Halloween party. Scroll down to see some of the best costumes.

    I have been working at M Financial Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong Benefits (Commuter Benefits, Inexpensive & Quality Healthcare Plan)
    Intelligent Colleagues
    Flexible Management
    Ability to Control Your Career Destiny

    You are rewarded for your ambitions and have the ability to grow your knowledge beyond the scope of your immediate job duties. There are numerous opportunities within this organization's various business lines, and individuals who have been here for a longer period of time often have experience working in multiple departments. The firm encourages continuing your education and offers reimbursement for approved educational expenses. Other reviews mention dull employees-- I find the staff here to be some of the brightest I've encountered in my 10+ years of professional work, however due to the substantial cultural changes, the employees are lagging in their adjustment to the new environment.

    Cons

    In the Midst of a Cultural Shift

    With any change comes pain, including disgruntled individuals who decide to leave the organization. Undeniably, M is still renovating the framework of the organization and there is ambiguity until that is done. However, the firm's actions are pointing to it becoming modernized and positioning itself for success.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to incentivize individual performance to motivate employees to improve their contributions to the firm. Continue to modernize the company with a formal remote-work policy and pooled time off. Staff HR properly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at M Financial Group in February 2017.

    Interview

    There is a phone interview and if that goes well, they invite you in to meet the executive and another executive assistant. I felt well taken care of and welcomed during the interview process. Everyone was very nice and they each had a focus on company culture.
