    Pros

    Onsite is a benefit but that depends on your project and your terms with manager.

    Cons

    Professional Culture: Nobody in the organisation understands the meaning of professionalism. The unnofficial language in office Marathi, even the meetings/discussions happen in it Work life balance: There no such thing is that, if you come in morning shift they will ask you to stay or roll eyes when you leave, most weekends are working and you are not suppose to ask for leaves Policies: None of the policy is in benefit of the employee

    Advice to Management

    Kindly treat your employees as humans and not billables. @HR: There are other important concerns that you should look into rather than sending emails about wearing formals during customer visit.

    Current Employee - CPA Development 

    I have been working at Magna International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    lots of social time and good work life balance (lots of perk)

    very cyclical and boring work

    There is a reason the company is a revolving door.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Magna International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you plan to give yourself fully to a company - no work life balance, lots of travel, little to no recognition. Then only to be let go when there is a down turn, then this may be a good fit for you.

    Cons

    This company DOES NOT care about its people. It is not par with the industry - no tuition reimbursement, low salaries with pending bonus, no support for families, high stress, no perks (no company car, basic healthcare, no maternity benefits (at all)), work to death culture, white male wins culture, etc. They publicize that they have leadership development (LDS) - they do not at any level of the organization. There are so many politics and you must be related to get ahead within this company. Look at the C-Suite their entire families work at the company.

    I worked at Magna International

    Pros

    None, the pay was competitive if based on a 40 hour work week, not on 60+ and no work/life balance

    Cons

    Very caustic work environment with no proper training or support from upper management

    Good luck, you are setting yourselves up for continued failure... your customers will soon replace you with better alternatives
