We are pleased to share that MGA has recently been named as one of the 2018 Accounting Today’s Best Accounting Firms to Work for! This award is a reflection on our entire team, and we are all very proud of this accomplishment.

While MGA is technically labeled in the ‘accounting’ industry, we are anything but your normal accounting firm. At MGA, we take complex topics and planning and make them simple for our clients. We are a firm with a holistic approach, and we really want to understand our clients and their businesses. It’s not about a tax return, an audit, or a set of financials. Those are the byproducts of the relationship, but the relationship itself is what remains front and center.

None of this is achievable without a great team. MGA has a diverse group of individuals, spanning cultures, ages, areas of expertise, and more to create a strong and robust firm. We celebrate learning, development, and a mutual respect for everyone here.

Why is MGA really a ‘best’ place to work?

Everyone at MGA is part of the plan. Each person has their own path but also has the ability to provide input to make MGA the best place to work. While many firms might be forced to be acquired by larger firms for survival, we have chosen to remain fiercely independent. Our team members are each part of the puzzle here building something greater than the sum of its parts. We collaborate, share, and care as a team. We give each person a significant amount of independence and focus instead on professional accountability. This way, everyone feels the buy-in to their career and to their clients.

MGA’s Personal Development Program

Recently, this summer, we launched a new personal development program to invest in our people. The program is optional and offered to every single employee who is looking for ways to grow both their personal and professional lives. For this, we are utilizing a Corporate Anthropologist — an outside consultant not from our industry. As a best of the best firm, we make it a top priority to invest in our folks in order to both attract and retain our exceptional talent.
