    I have been working at Magna International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    EOS 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.

    Pros

    Working 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".

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.
