  1. Lack of communication lends itself to a largely negative work environment.

    Pros

    They offer a reasonably good benefit package, 401K, free financial consultant and onsite workshops with guest speakers from various organizations such as the American Red Cross, Race for the Cure, and United Way.

    Cons

    There are no sick days, no comp time -one must use personal or vacation days to make up for any lost time. Management does not lend itself well to assisting their employees with problems or issues.
    Personality is rewarded more often than performance.

  2. Good enough for a summer job

    I worked at Autoliv full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is my first internship

    I learned about electronics, test equipment, and schematics. The company also invited the interns to a few meeting where they discussed the technologies they were working on. If you had a field of interest, they would take that into account when assigning a group to work for.

    Cons

    Often, especially in the beginning of the internship, there was not enough work to do, so I'd either wander around trying to find work, or sit at the computer and try to educate myself on job related topics. This was a problem for other interns too. I was generally used to perform boring time consuming work often unrelated to my field of interest. I suppose that such work comes with the territory, but there are probably better internships out there.

  3. Good company but typical pitfalls of being run from Europe

    Pros

    Interesting work, good people but some departments have little room for growth. Watch out for groups that report directly to European managers as it tends to create a difficult situation with employee trying to serve many needs with little support.

    Cons

    Can be very stressful with long hours and many demands. Fluctuations in economy can cause significant impact but this is true for any automotive manufacturer.

    Pros

    Pay is good. Benefits are great. Standard production job.

    Cons

    Leadership is based off of friendship/family relations outside of work. Constant sexual harassment cases kept hushed. Mandatory OT all the time (6-day work week).

    Advice to Management

    Graveyard is a shift that works too. Please treat your employees on that shift like real people.

    Pros

    There is always a problem to solve and work to be done, which makes your days short.
    Worked within engineering, production and maintenance.

    Cons

    Upper management likes politics instead of results, which makes everyone taking care of their own back.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people.

    Pros

    the medical insurence is good. the dental is good. that is prity much all i can think of to tell you the truth.

    Cons

    the people in charge dont care about you. All they want is as much material they can push out the door. If for some reason you are incharge they want you to dedicate youre whole life to them.
    like meeting once a week schooling that wont matter any where but there. home work FROM YOUR JOB! really fpr production workers.

    Advice to Management

    You need to start caring about youre people. theybuild devices to save the people in this country.
    Dont you think that if you treat them good you get a better product.
