Relocation Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 February 2017
Typical day at work was to administer our corporate clients relocation policy to their relocating employees.

My immediate team leader was very difficult to work with, however, the higher-up management were very easy to work with and were always approachable and very knowledgeable.

The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with our corporate clients relocating employees.

Not Great, Not Terrible
International Relocation Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary8 June 2015
Over all the biggest drawback at TheMIGroup is the major lack of quality training.The people are great and the social committee makes a good effort.
Expectations are very high that mistakes are not made and training is not adequate. This leads to stressful situations and having to answer to team leads on why an error occurred.
Pros
Good people
Cons
poor office morale, heavy workload

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, ON5 November 2013
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 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
  more... 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).

Vacation, social committee that makes a true effort

Great place to work
Relocation Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB16 May 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.
