Negative Outlook

I worked at Magna International full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

None. Magna took over New Process Gear from Chrysler for the sole purpose of closing us and moving the business to Mexico. All employees including management were treated horribly.

Cons

Treated like animals. Cutting costs was the only important thing. People were constantly being fired just to reduce the workforce before the plant closing.

Advice to Management

You have no souls!

    I have been working at Magna International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None anymore after what just happened.

    Cons

    Our CIO want to be just left (or was asked to leave, we will never know). He lasted around 1.5 years, better than the guy before him. He promoted the wrong people, he hired the wrong people, he fired the wrong people, listened to the president, and then left. Bravo again to everyone involved. The international crew will now show up help change things again. The issue is that they are in it for themselves.
    HR is constantly spying on employees. They always side with Driveline because they have no power whatsoever. Quality Department head is related to someone in the company. Purchasing VP just left to go work at a university. The list goes on folks.

    Advice to Management

    Ask some questions - sometimes it helps. No more surveys once a year.
