    Pros

    Md has an amazing company culture and invests in it's people. It's a small company so it's not too difficult to stand out.

    Cons

    Career progression at the regional offices are limited if you're not interested in following the typical career path or moving.

    I have been working at MD Financial Management full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work! Not a lot of micro management and the freedom to work your own way. The concept of flex working is an amazing perk!

    Cons

    Although there are lots of jobs available, the ability to move laterally or forward seems challenging. There is growth from within, but seems unsure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and trust your teams. Look to promote within to keep morale high and employees happy.

    Pros

    MD Financial Management has such an inclusive and supportive company culture. They are all about the employee experience and a solid work-life balance. There are options to work out of a home based office or in their beautiful facilities. They select quality applicants and I can easily call my co-workers friends. My manager has been so supportive and just great to work for.

    Cons

    There can be a high turnover in certain departments and there are a lot of contract positions, which can make it hard to plan for your personal future. However, you do go into a contract expecting that, so it's not a surprise.
