At MG2, we dive in and dig deep. We enjoy what we do and the people we do it with. We’re curious, empathetic and (mostly) ego-free. We push each other to be even better, support each other when things get stressful and go all out to help our client’s achieve their goals.
Our culture is based on recognition and appreciation. So we celebrate birthdays. And anniversaries. And every other Friday, we get together for an all-office breakfast buffet.
We design over-the-top, insanely detailed gingerbread houses, dominate rec-league sports and know all the best happy hours around. Most importantly, we take time to give back to our communities, together.
