    Pros

    MGIC has excellent benefits, treat employees well, has great senior management, salary is competitive and work/life balance IS THE BEST!! 37.5 hour work weeks. Lots of room to move about company. Great focus on employees and show appreciation for their employees in lots of ways. SUPER FLEXIBLE schedules to accommodate everyone. Company donates money to charities and has scholarships available to employee's children. Senior management has great knowledge. Employee turnover is super low and re-hire rate is ridiculous because the company is a great place to work for.

    Cons

    Parking downtown is pricey. And there's a 15 year waiting list for company parking.

    Advice to Management

    none

    I worked at MGIC Investment full-time

    Pros

    Nice employee benefit package
    Easy access to downtown
    Friendly and helpful co-workers
    Community involvement
    PTO
    Vacation
    On site cafeteria
    Lunch on the plaza ( favorite)
    Employee recognition
    Well kept landscape
    Nice security guards

    Cons

    The way management gives a very short notice regarding a staff reduction. I think it is very tacky and unprofessional. It is like a slap in the face, you don't see it coming...beware if you are still there. They wait until you arrive at work, then present the bad and unfortunate news, that you no longer have a job!!!

    Advice to Management

    Please reconsider how you present company separation/staff reduction to employees that are not even aware, they have lost their job. I would give this overall rating a 0 :((

    Pros

    MGIC is a great place to learn and grow professionally. Management works with individuals to better their career path and growth potential.

    Cons

    MGIC is very compartmentalized and segmented which hinders open communication between departments. They are working on these issues and there has been improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the people that want to be there to work and learn instead of directing them to busy work and letting their talents go to waste.

    I have been working at MGIC Investment full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at MGIC for 14 years and I have held 5 positions here and have continued to advance. People don't leave...The benefits are great, co workers are amazing and they care about their people. They understand that you have a life outside of work and will work with you when you have to leave early for appointments ECT. They are now renovating the entire building...It's looking modern and up to date.

    Cons

    "old school" styles but this is slowly being changed and people retire and new people are being hired.
