Recent changes within the organization and the waqy people are treated is not aligned with the principles of the Charter

Wonderful place to work until merged with Magna

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
KenTownshipood, MI

I worked at Magna Donnelly

ProsNot alot of opportunity for advancement, unless you are well connected at the top in Canada.

ConsPerformance reviews are late, and always on the negative side. Too much negative influence from Canada, and dismissal of good Donnelly employees for bottom line driven corporate people. Open door policy from top management does not exist.

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow your company policies. You talk them, but you don't walk them.

Good company if you are a high performer

Director of Product Development (Former Employee)
Holland, MI

I worked at Magna Donnelly

ProsOpportunity to work without constant supervision, if you perform well you can go to the top

ConsAggressive cost cutting can affect staff without notice

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep some of the experts – don’t just cut out the high pay positions to save money. The inexperienced are cheaper but there is a reason for that, they don’t know as much.
