    Pros

    Magna is a large company with excellent benefits. There are a lot of opportunities for vertical and lateral growth.

    Cons

    The downsides will be determined by the individual plant. Coming from a brand new facility, there are a lot of basic things that still need to be done. Also, the lack of global systems and coordinated efforts between the plants is quite surprising.

    Advice to Management

    Define milestones and track the progress of salaried individuals. There are too many salary employees that are over paid and do not achieve anything noteworthy. I believe this is the fault of management by not clearly defining their expectations and deadlines.

    Pros

    Bottom line focused company across all business units. Decentralized philosophy. Great benefits , including profit sharing.

    Cons

    No promotion structure in place for sales and engineering. No mechanism in place for measuring success. Constantly feel like your head is on the chopping block.

    Advice to Management

    Create a bonus structure around realistic targets. Recognize wins at all levels. Make travel plans easier on the employee who is being asked to travel!
