    I worked at MG2 full-time (More than 5 years)

    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

    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.

    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.

    I worked at MG2 full-time (More than a year)

    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.

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

    Pros

    -Great Location
    -Located in recently remodeled headquarters that includes many effective team-focused features such as an open work atmosphere, collaboration areas, & a very unique lunch room
    -Great company culture with very frequent activities, sports, games, & other opportunities to bond with coworkers & have fun

    Not really. Depending on what you are working on there can be unforeseen overtime or staffing shortage but that's typical with this profession & doesn't bother me

    Advice to Management

    Continue to pay attention & acknowledge the goals of the employees & keep up the good work making this a fun & dynamic place to work
