    Lasted Longer than Expected

    IT Manager (Former Employee) Holly, MI

    ProsSeen as the future of Magna. The division is allowed to operate at a loss for years without profit. Little accountability, but slowly changing with the Magna culture of making profits.

    ConsConstant reorganization and buy-outs over the years. Management changes allot and change is slow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStick with the Magna decentralized culture and forget centralization efforts, it only waste time as you build up empire to only be brought down after Magna sees what has happen to the place.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
