Very active company with a tremendous work load that times flies when working.
Title & Closing Coordinator (Current Employee), Whippany, NJMarch 26, 2014
A typical day at work...

Reading emails and respond to time sensitive matters
Sending out wires (equity, payoffs, closing costs) and reviewing
the bank download
Reconciling several files and sending final invoices to client
Other invoices generated but not limited to inventory, post-closing,
property management
Updating spreadsheets and create reports – more... for management

In the six years that I been at my current employer, I have learned a tremendous amount of information. I have worked in the expense management, audit, compliance, and title and closing department,

Due to the work volume, I am never bored and rarely look at the clock. – less

High turnover
paid (Former Employee), Houston, TXNovember 5, 2013
Pros: generous time off
Cons: compensation is low, management is inexperienced, lack of support
Houston is one of the worst BU's to work for in this company. The only good thing is they are generous with time off. People get laid off or leave and no reason is given, even if the person is very senior. Last year the company decided to absolutely do away with their awards program that year because they said no one in the company met expectations, – more... there are more than 5 business units all over the world. – less

Good Overall company

Pros: many free lunches, monthly bonuses for performance, annual bonus; nice office layout & equipment
Cons: youthful inexperienced managers, corp. office located too far way (toronto, cn)
No further comments. Management team inexperienced in supervising & operational details. Path to advancement too focused on completion of modules vs. work accomplishments/performance.

Over worked during busy season
Slave (Current Employee), Hayward, CAJune 30, 2013
Pros: cool co workers
Cons: overworked. managers don't seem to care.
The increase in the work load during the busy season is unreasonable. The company has high standards which can not be met when you have 100 customers but there is no extra help.

Management talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. My co worker are cool but when you see the most seasoned employee cry because of the stress and unattainable service levels – more... it makes you think. – less

Friendly environment but lack of management
Business Process Intern (Current Employee), Hayward, CAOctober 25, 2012
The MIGroup has a very diverse group of employees. The employees are all friendly, welcoming and helpful. Usually there is a company event once a month. There are a lot of growth opportunities.

However, the company needs to improve on their management. The people who are at the management level needs more training.

A company that falls short as a great employer due to their inability to embrace change and their incapable managers.
Team Member (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 5, 2013
Pros: vacation, social committee that makes a true effort
Cons: compensation, high stress/expectations placed on employee, low job satisfaction
When you start with the company, you are immediately impressed with the formal training that's offered. After two month's of training you are actually thrown into the position with little knowledge on how to perform tasks TheMI way and no tools to even refer to. It's sink or swim. The formal theory training does not apply in the day to day practice – more... of the position.

Management/Team Leaders do not get involved in your training and development. You are forced to ask your colleagues for direction, if they can give you the time. Should you make a mistake, you are then questioned by your team leader on why the error occurred, regardless of the fact that no one took the time to properly show you how to complete the task. You will then proceed to get the direction only to perform the task incorrectly. Once again you will be questioned. This time you will be given a totally different answer by the same person.

Team Leaders have little knowledge or the time to assist new employees, let alone the team they are supposed to "manage". The team is the backbone of the entire operation and all expectations and blame is placed on them.

The work environment is usually hostile. People visibly upset on a daily basis due stress, the lack of support, unrealistic expectations. There is no work life balance as you are required to be available 24/7 (which is not disclosed at the time you are hired).

Management does not follow by example in many ways from work ethic to communication skills. Nor do they work on the same level of expectation that is placed on the team . "Do as I say and not as I do" is management's practicing motto. When enough team members approach management to deal with an issue, they step in, promise change and support, however, deliver none. The original problem is then thrown back to the team for them to cope or find alternative employment.

The company does have a few good points, such as; they have a casual dress code, jean Fridays and often the company has special events for their employees (to boost low moral). – less

Great place to work
Relocation Manager (Current Employee), Calgary, ABMay 16, 2013
A challenging yet fun place to work. Everyday is something new and exciting. Dealing with clients from all over the world and helping their employees transfer to a new location with as little stress as possible.
