THE MGC CODE
We Exist to Bring Dreams to Life
Your dreams to travel, pursue your passions, to create, to build, to communicate. Our client’s dream to grow, evolve and change the world.
Client Experience is our Secret Ingredient
When clients meet their goals, and we make their lives easier, we earn their trust and build long term relationships. These trusting relationships lead to taking bigger risks, allow for better work and faster processes with less interference. But building this relationship takes time, patience and tenacity. We must provide our clients with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions, and the love they need to overcome their fear. Treat clients and coworkers equally as you would a friend, rather than an obstacle to success.
We Do Not Accept Low Paying Clients
We provide a tremendous value to our clients: you – and we will not sell you short by cutting prices and asking you to take the hit because something is “cool” or an “opportunity.”
We Are a Global Network of Kindred Spirits Acting Locally
We may live in and be from different cities, states and countries and we may never meet in person. But we are connected as one – to support each other in building a collective of talent greater than the sum of its parts. We want to make a difference in every spot we cover with our talent on earth. Just let us know how we can help.
You Are Responsible for Pushing Your Own Buttons
We always need you at your best – work when you want, how you want and where you want – just don’t settle for mediocrity. Always give your best. Learn what inspires you and understand that you alone are responsible to keep yourself inspired. Learn what videos, songs, tv shows, lighting, sitting position, snacks and people get you jazzed for life.
Everyone is Here to Be Creative
Don’t categorize anyone into one specific role. We only hire people who are curious and driven to learn and master multiple roles. Expect data scientists to write headlines, and designers to set up analytics. If you master every role in marketing, nothing can stop your success at anything you put your mind to. Agencies have an assembly-line mentality that places a premium on niche roles. We expect more from you and you should expect more from yourself.
Unpopular Opinions Are Welcome
We expect you to share your point of view and feelings, no matter how unpopular. Challenging the status quo is how we create the groundbreaking work our clients deserve.
If We’ve Hired You, You’re Brilliant
Don’t let it go to your head, but we’re picky.
Always Communicate Problems
Have trouble meeting a deadline? Don’t have the resources you need? Don’t understand something? A client website got hacked because you accidentally used public wifi at a hacker conference? Tell us – no judgements – we are all here to solve problems. Deadlines can be moved, disaster plans can be enacted, but no one likes surprises.
At the beginning of a new relationship – with us or a client, you need to do everything to earn the trust that will help overcome obstacles that will no doubt pop up. Send us too many messages. Demand what you need to do your job. Never “wait” on another person. We should all make unsticking what each other needs to do their job a priority.
Every Assignment is an Opportunity
We may not win an award with every project, but you still have the chance to hone your craft and do the best work possible. Always provide multiple options, but never one you’d be embarrassed to have chosen.
Ask What More You Can Be Doing
What can make our clients more successful? What can make us more efficient? What can help inspire our team? What’s something I know that can help others? You’re not here to fulfill a series of task, but be true leaders, and that leadership starts with asking this question every day.
You Should Expect Everyone Else to Live Up to Our Code
If someone is not delivering on their end, politely remind them – give them advice. We’re all here to respectfully support each other.
