    Company is filled with some of the best and brightest I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Senior management hinders any change and progress being made for Electronics, They are currently losing people as fast as they can hire them.

    Leave your office occasionally and get a real idea of what is going on.

    The people they have in charge are people who can hardly speak English and is very difficult to speak to. Communication is terrible with can make the work day very stressful.

    Pros

    Great Support and work environment.

    Cons

    Lot of red tape at times to get things approved.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to approach Supplier Quality as a global company with more flexibility regarding remote SQDES so all areas geographically are covered. Do not assign by commodity assign by geographic areas.

    Pros

    Working at Magna Powertrain affords many opportunities for intelligent and motivated employees. Magna Powertrain is not heavy on corporate regulations, and oversight. The focus is always on the bottom line, delivering the project successfully, and how you get there isn't prescribed.

    Cons

    Because of the lack of structure, the amount of firefighting during program launch seems excessive. With all companies surely there is some, but at Magna it seems that daily over 80% of all employees time and focus is on fixing broken things, instead of planning and controlling.

    Advice to Management

    Management at Magna Powertrain does not empower their employees, and have no time for each other or themselves. They go from urgent program issue to urgent program issue, without stopping. They should be making more time for their colleagues, and growing the leadership across the organization.

    Pros

    Great people, great atmosphere, and great pay for the work.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little favorable of some people, coming from the office though.

    Advice to Management

    Let's be a little more lenient with points, especially when it is due to weather and out of someone's hands. You're losing a lot of great workers due to this.

    Pros

    They care about their employees, and my experience there was wonderful. The pay we received for the work we did seemed more than fair, and if I had the opportunity, I would return there.

    Cons

    Very strict attendance policies. long hours and possibility of working lots of weekends....so if you like overtime, this would be considered a pro.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest to take a second look at their sick day policies, and medical leave policies. being a non union company and an at-will employer, they need to offer up something to give employees a better sense of job security in the event of personal injury or illness

    Pros

    They pay a decent wage.

    Cons

    The upper management does nothing but lie, and show favoritism towards the employees of choice. Which are usually the ones that bow down and kiss butt!! They have their own golf buddies, and bowling buddies. The HR department needs to be rid of Sherry, the Front office needs to be rid of Steven. It would be a good place to work if they had those two investigated in money and management manners.
