      I worked at CMG Financial full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      my boss was great until he wasn't. once you are disliked you will be forced out sooner or later. however; the benefits are great in comparison to what i've found after. i paid $250 a check for everything for my entire family. my next job was twice that!

      Cons

      worked here 3 years and 4 months; not a single review. not once; also no raises ever. i was finally given a raise when i threatened to leave. despite knowledge, hard work and dedication there was zero growth opportunities. i finally burned myself out and quit. very who you know company; make friends with the right people and you're good regardless of abilities.

      Advice to Management

      get your account managers to do their jobs rather than allowing them to pass it off to underwriting or registration. or even sales. I have never seen such a useless group of employees as the wholesale account managers. set up an actual review and raise system.

      I have been working at CMG Financial full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      lots of work to keep busy, fairly flexible hours and great benefits

      Cons

      no yearly evaluations=NO RAISES or praises unless you change positions to a different department. Jobs that are on their job board never indicate a pay scale so it makes one less inclined to apply.

      Advice to Management

      Give a yearly evaluation and let your employees know how they are doing A pat on the back and a small raise every now and then would help build morale. They are loosing good employees because the majority of employees prefer to have yearly evaluations/raises. When you advertise a job on your job board, state the starting pays. That makes it easier for people to determine if they want to apply for the position, makes...

      I worked at CMG Financial full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great Benefits. Was able to work remotely from my home office. That's about all I have to say. I did work with some awesome people. Excluding the management staff

      Cons

      If your not part of the CMG "click" you most likely won't get a promotion or move up with the company

      Advice to Management

      Conduct annual reviews for your employees who bust their butts to make the company what it is.

      I have been working at CMG Financial full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Family atmosphere amongst trench workers. Benefits are Great! Sometimes weekly potlucks

      Cons

      Mis-management. No Reviews. No raises. too much nepotism. zero accountability.

      Advice to Management

      come up with a self review system that involves setting goals, keeping track of the goals, and having real-time training to be able to perform job function correctly. Working here for so many years/months and not one review nor raise is disheartening and overwhelmingly spirit-crushing. Taking suggestions from the workforce seriously. The mangement could learn a great deal from the employees if the employees didn't have...
