    I have been working at Magna International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Tremendous efforts put forth to make sure the production personnel are comfortable and happy with the work environment. Corporate and Division level engineer groups focus heavily on R&D to bring innovation into the production facilities

    Cons

    Potentially long work hours. Technical groups have in the past been overlooked on QOL issues.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the wealth of resources available to come to consensus when issues arise. No one person has to solely bare the the brunt of a misstep. Everyone stands to gain or lose when we win or don't.
