    Pros

    As long as you love your work and not your wrist watch so much... you will love this company.
    Holidays, benefit top notch.

    Cons

    None so far. Enjoying my everyday work. High quality/organic food at the cafeteria, bit pricey though!

    Advice to Management

    Friendly experienced and easy to communicate.

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

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work here are the people and the environment. I was able to work on multiple projects at once that could be a day to day basis or the whole term.They are always willing to teach and it feels like a small family business. No one is trying to oust you out of your job and management is always willing to give you more responsibility if you ask for it. Plus management is always involved and not on the sidelines like some other major corporations.

    Cons

    Some groups have bad cultures and almost always busy, where things needed to get done yesterday. It feels like some of the meetings don't need to happen as they take up to 50% of some peoples' days.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate on getting more people together for meetings so multiple ones don't need to happen on different days to make sure everything is being caught up on.
