Working at MGIC

For more than 6 decades we've fostered a culture of engagement, accountability, performance, wellness, recognition and reward. We want our co-workers to find positions they can grow with and that they truly love. To that end, we encourage all of our co-workers to take the lead in their work, their personal and professional development, and with their customers. You'll find yourself falling in love with our culture, and contributing to a worthy cause: helping others achieve the dream of homeownership.

In fact, ever since real estate attorney Max Karl founded our company (and modern mortgage insurance itself) in 1957, our greatest asset has been our talented, dedicated, innovative staff.

Our co-workers enjoy stimulating work, fulfilling career development and advancement, competitive pay, and a comprehensive benefits package and wellness program. Co-workers based in our Milwaukee, Wisconsin headquarters can also take advantage of the more than 30 onsite exercise classes we offer each week, as well as a state-of-the-art onsite fitness center. Our corporate headquarters also sponsor co-worker activities and events, like the MGIC Golf Classic, summer picnics, "Jeans Day" Fridays, and Co-Worker Appreciation Days. We respect really hard work, but we like to have fun along the way.

 

More than 800 co-workers call MGIC home, with approximately 600 in our Milwaukee corporate offices. An additional 200 co-workers, including our sales force, work throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Our field offices are located in the following metropolitan areas:
  • Atlanta, Georgia

First, I love that MGIC represents "homeownership." We continue to be one of the top MI companies today because of the strength, stability and integrity of our executive team. I am proud to work for a company that makes you feel like you are part of their success no matter what role you play. My position allows me to be creative and use my judgment. When I leave the office each day, I feel a sense of satisfaction. MGIC takes the time to recognize you for your accomplishments and years of service amongst other great benefits. There is a reason MGIC continues to be voted "Top 100 Workplaces in Milwaukee" and I am blessed to be a part of the MGIC team.
