    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Life and work balance. Multicultural enviroment

    Cons

    Lack of career development. The majority of management positions are held by men. Bureaucratic company.

    Advice to Management

    Better implementation of strategies. Great ideas for mentoring and career development but they are not implemented well across the company specially outside the HQ (Dallas). Need more mentors and not managers across the organization.

    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

    Friendly, laid back atmosphere and a good cooperative cross-functional environment. Committed to their customer base and many are true believers in the good their product provides.

    Cons

    Slow to move on initiatives, limited vision. Many in the organization are comfortable with where the company is and there does not seem to be much willingness at all to take calculated risks

    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.

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