    Pros

    Very great job with a lot of perks and benefits. Everyone from the Building Manager to the production works are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Just one con for me and its just personal. The drive is starting to wear on me. Driving from Atlanta to Carrollton 5 times a week gets pretty old.

    Tell you anything to get in the door.

    Cons

    Worst management in the industry. Work long hours including weekends. Head of program management has a dictator style. This is reflected and rewarded by the president. Purchasing department has the image of Men's Warehouse. Engineering is led by inexperienced and arrogance.

    Start over!

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Magna truly cares about how its employees are treated. People with bad attitudes or disrespectful to colleagues are really not tolerated for very long. The benefits are great, the work is challenging and salaries are at the top end of the range in their respective areas.

    Cons

    Career path could be better defined. Moving up within the company is difficult only because there is no clear path.

    Advice to Management

    Employees want to grow. And they need a more specific path to whichever growth pattern they would choose. Management help would be huge
