Disorganization and micromanagement from highly ineffective leadership
A typical day at work: taking nonsensical orders from disorganized management and a delusional CEO who thinks he is a one-person company. They behave like a bootstrapped startup with the bureaucracy of a 50-year-old corporation. There was a great company culture at first, but with high turnover and poor hiring decisions, the company culture became dry, rigid and contrived. Be prepared for regular layoffs due to a lack of planning for new roles prior to hiring.

We appreciate you taking the time to post. Most of the folks we talk to describe their typical day as working on challenging technical problems and making a real impact on the financial health of Canadians. It’s unfortunate you didn’t feel the same. We are dedicated to our startup roots and our ability to be flexible and nimble contributes to our success. However, as the company has evolved so to have our processes - we’re now a publicly-traded fintech company. We understand that this stage can be a struggle for some. We wish we had the opportunity to address your concerns one-on-one but do feel free to reach out to the People and Culture team anytime. - Mgr. People & Culture @ Mogo

Really don't recommend working at Mogo
Leadership has no idea what they're doing and is very delusional, there is a toxic culture from the top down. It's a company that's falling apart with a CEO that's on his own planet

Thanks for sharing your experience. We’re very proud of the culture at Mogo. One of the consistent things we hear is that people love their teams and appreciate how accessible our senior leadership is, whether it’s chats in the office or product vision town halls. They form strong friendships, work on challenging but rewarding problems, and work towards meeting very high expectations. However, we’re not perfect and we know that there will always be room for improvement. We’re sorry to hear your experience hasn’t been positive and to better help, we would encourage you to reach out to your direct leader or the People and Culture team. - Mgr. People & Culture @ Mogo

Favouritism
To sum up regular updates and management have no clue at all. They won’t train properly but keep on pressuring to reduce errors. Mostly people are hired for work permit or provincial nominees.

We appreciate you taking the time to write about your experience. One of the things we pride ourselves on is open communication. The team has regular 1:1's with leadership which is a great opportunity to ask questions or get clarity on company direction.

We're a little surprised to hear your feedback around training. Onboarding for MoPro's is a mix of in-class instruction, job shadowing, and hand on learning - with frequent group discussions and quizzes. Once on the job all new team members have the full support of our training team. We would welcome any feedback on how we can improve this in the future. Please feel free to reach out directly at hr@mogo.ca - Manager, People & Culture @ Mogo

Difficult working environment
This company was extremely difficult to work for, too much drama and work politics. Work/life balance did NOT exist and was never encouraged. The best part of working here was meeting my best friend.

Glad to hear you made some fabulous connections at Mogo. We agree, the team is truly amazing!

We totally understand Work/life balance can be a struggle. Many people are juggling their careers along with commitments at home (kids, money, relationships etc.). It can be hard!


At Mogo we fully support healthy work/life balance. We provide vacation and sick days and an EFAP is part of our benefits plan. This provides confidential, professional support for individuals based on their unique circumstances. We would encourage individuals to speak with their Manager, if they're comfortable, or a member of the People & Culture team. - Manager, People & Culture @ Mogo.

Would not recommend.
Mogo has an interesting culture and can feel like a family as some people are amazing. unfortunately this place is also completely disorganized, money hungry and there is no solid platform of business. Fast growth meant constant change without proper training,

A typical day is being abused by customers, being subjected to constant nepotism, miscommunication, and poor leadership.


The hardest part of the job is the customers, the pressure of stats, it's a typical call centre. Low pay, bonus is implied but not achievable/not usually available.


Most enjoyable? Everyone will agree: snacks.


Management is okay if they think you're "cool".
Pros
Snacks
Cons
Soul draining

Amazing culture and wonderful people
I had the pleasure to be part of Mogo's leadership team and it was a blast! I worked at the Winnipeg location.

Several incentives, great benefits and an incredible culture. Higher management really cares about everyone!


This is a fast pace environment, great for millennials that love technology and want to grown in financial/technology industry.


In this office you will find easy going people ready to help. Mogo's secret to success is their amazing people.


I was always welcomed to share ideas and to try new ways.


Mogo's goal is to provide the best experience for the clients. That means results are expected but results are achievable.


I hope you also have the opportunity to work there!
Pros
Amazing culture, great people
Cons
None :)

Mogo Typical work day is 8.5 hours shift. You can be skilled to any need that would arise, inbound, outbound, chat, emails, cases, etc. I learned that companies have different values and priorities in managing their businesses. Workplace culture is run by brotherhood and calls the team family. The hardest part of the job is not knowing where to find solutions without asking for verbal help and agreement to the process. The most enjoyable part of the job is friendship with colleagues.
Pros
advancement
Cons
Skill mismatch
