    I have been working at Magna Electronics as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good work environment, helpful people. HR team is great. No time-off. Company values are great. Got to learn a lot.

    Cons

    Leadership is the only one. Other than that there are no cons to this company. This company first hires via contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing.

    I worked at Magna Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is generally good. You get to work with some experienced engineers as well.

    Cons

    Fire fighting environment. Every person is loaded with multiple projects. Available engineering resources go to whatever project has the biggest problems. Too much politics at a management level and a huge disconnect of what is going on the ground. Management team with rare exceptions is incompetent and clueless, somehow people at a working level always seem to the problem/scapegoat for failures. Business comes in at a rate much higher than the available resources can absorb. Project plans are pretty much meaningless since resources aren't steady.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    New tech company where a lot of creativeness is thriving. A lot of seasoned engineers and technicians.

    Cons

    As a young organization, the company is still struggling to find a stable management structure. Some engineering standard is not established yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More flexibility is needed.

    Former Employee - IT Manager in Holly, MI

    I worked at Magna Electronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Seen 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick 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.
