    Pros

    Salary was on higher end. Generous benefit packages. I had good team that I worked led by a good manager. Technology and technical knowledge were on the advanced level.

    Cons

    The organization was broken down into functional silos and managed well within the specific silo, but communications, collaboration, common vision, and teamwork across the various silos were usually weak if even existent. Executive management tends to make quick reaction to information as presented to them. The information presented does not always have the full perspective on the topic and decisions are made without full understanding of the potential impact or costs.
    High personnel turnover. In 3 years I have had the each of the 3 levels of management above me change at least 3 times.

    Pros

    The company has a great team of talented people with no shortage of revenue growth opportunities. The company strategy is well aligned to the changing market place.

    Cons

    With a rapidly changing marketplace for its products and having many opportunities to capitalize, MGI must continually work to maintain focus and execute well.

    Pros

    The people are the company's greatest asset...some of the best I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Communication of changes can be more effective and in a more timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the decision at some point in the future of outsourcing the call center to a foreign country.

    Pros

    Office culture is unique. People for the most part are trying to do what is right for the company. Benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and clear direction from the leadership team.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more clear direction from leadership. Seems to have a lack of ownership on projects. Lack of agreement among leadership on what the priorities are for the business.

  7. Lack of labor resources
