    Great company to work for

    Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsTop company top management team is committed to doing the right thing, and there is a lot of positive momentum.

    ConsI really have no complaints about working here -- probably because I like all the people I work with -- those that I work wtih on a day-to-day basis, as well as those on a more incidental basis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing.

    Magna International

    Production Worker (Current Employee) Highland Park, MI

    ProsWorking for Magna provides some the best opportunities for employees to advance to a higher level if desired. They care about their employees potential for growth and they encourage you to seek the education and training to better quailfy for new position within the company." It's a great place to work".

    ConsThe only downside to working for Magna is if the auto manufacturers begin cutting jobs and and closing plants because of declining auto sales. This would be some concern only because Magna is a supplier to most of these companies that manufacture cars.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing, you have a solid grip on the world market and continue to perform exceedingly well. The management team knows exactly where this company is headed, and will stay firmly ahead of problems that may its way.

    great company, focused on succeeding.

    Quality Auditor (Current Employee) Liverpool, England (UK)

    ProsI have been given great opportunities since I started here 3 years ago, have learnt a lot of new skills. The company are really focussed on providing training for employees who have the potential to make a difference and are always looking to the future.

    ConsManagement are not always good leaders and often can make rash decisions under pressure, temporary labour through recruitment agencies don't always have the same interests as the companies full time employees and are willing to let the company fail, but the company don't see this and keep those individuals within a job

    Advice to Senior ManagementEOS is not the best way to find out what your employees think about you as a company, getting on the shop floor and talking to the staff to find out what we are thinking can sometimes go a long way.

    A company filled with opportunity for driven employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOpportunities are given to all levels of employees and team members to strive to do better for themselves and to support the company.

    ConsTypical challenges are present of a company that is founded in North America and trying to get skilled/competent staff to support growing operations worldwide.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaking timely decisions is the key to supporting profitable divisions and to addressing those which are underpreforming. Strong leadership and execution should be recognized and nurtured.
