    I have been working at MG2 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MG2 is a great firm that is striving to be better. The Leadership is always looking to make improvements to processes and deliver higher quality services to our Clients. A lot of firms get stuck, and are unwilling to look inside to see what needs to be updated, changed, re-vamped. MG2 is willing to ask the questions and search for the best answers. The Leadership here also places a lot of value in work/life balance. We work hard, but our lives outside of the office matter. Our families matter, and the Leadership here promotes that. MG2 is full of great Employees who are doing great work on exciting projects.

    Cons

    All companies have their issues. MG2 included. Employee development and career development are still works in progress. Sometimes employees get stuck into a career path that doesn't suit their skills and abilities.

    Advice to Management

    Loving your Team, and your work environment, doesn't mean you love your job. The bells and whistles are nice, but the best investment is always in the Employee. Better training for younger staff and better compensation for seasoned employees are areas of improvement to consider. Better training and higher compensation needs to flow into the Business Services Teams as well. We can't forget the ones that grind it out behind the scenes everyday making MG2 great.

    Pros

    Great company to work for with excellent benefits and work life balance. They go to great lengths to unify the company with events and are very supportive of new ideas

    Cons

    There is some rivalry between teams-some are more technical and the creative projects are competitive

    I have been working at MG2 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are part of the In crowd and liked by management you are safe. If you enjoy Bullying, Harassment, Intimidation and threats about your job security then this is also the place for you.

    Cons

    Unless you have no other option. DO NOT WORK HERE!

    Management has encouraged employees to provide positive reviews to hide some of the negative reviews that have been written.

    MG2 has become a terrible environment to work in. You would think that with the current climate of Harassment and Bullying that there would be a bigger initiative to stop this. The poor treatment of others starts at the very top of the Leadership at this office and is continued down through middle management. If you have a voice or try to stand up for yourself you will be bullied, intimidated and embarrassed in front of your peers until you submit.

    I have personally talked to HR about certain individuals in this office with little no recourse.

    This is not new to this office. Behavior like this has gone on for years. The absence of HR in this office promotes this behavior to continue.

    I, like many others I am sure, are actively looking to get out of here.

    Advice to Management

    Take action! This starts from the top. Discipline those who are creating a hostile work environment.

    I worked at MG2 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work fairly independently

    Cons

    Was paid a horrible salary, was forced into additional job responsibilities that I did not apply for nor were relevant to the initial job, and received next to no respect from coworkers for not being an architect.

    Pros

    The benefits are good, and the new office is nice. They are very good at marketing.

    Cons

    Too many "bad" or " problem" managers who had been with the company for years. They chose to hire experienced people from other firms instead of promoting their own staff because they don't take the time to train and develop careers. High turnover-MG2 is always hiring.

    MG2 has put forth a great commitment to helping employees grow and obtain their goals. If you are wanting to move within the firm, or change teams to gain new experiences, the staff is open-minded and ready to assist however needed.

    Cons

    The hours can be long at times, but that comes with being in the architecture field.
