Autoliv

AMT (Current Employee)
Ogden, UT

I have been working at Autoliv full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThis is a technically advanced company and the technoogy is amazing. The company is very into lean manufacturing and a lot of the managers truly believe in the "Don't Judge Don't Blame" view of things. The company believes in education and has a great education benefit program if you are wise enought to take advantage of it. I have been with the company a long time and it has taken good care of me.

ConsThere is still some politics just like you find in every company. Some of the managers are egotistical but no more than any other place I have worked. If you want to advance you must have a degree even if you have been with the company for years.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep building current employees which in turn will build a better workplace.

I am very proud to work for this company

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Autoliv

ProsThis company provide a lot of good chance and growth in career. Also the company give and invest the knowledge to the employee.

Consthe communication inside of company need to be improved and some management are not skillful enough. So they can't be the mentor for their employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementLocal management must learn to real performance of their employee and they should have more technical knowledge to be able to manage their employee.

Best place I ever worked

Quality Engineer (Current Employee)
Columbia City, IN

I have been working at Autoliv

ProsIt was almost effortless to make a difference.
So easy to make improvements.
Best, well trained, good natured hourly workforce I've ever encountered.
Great systems! This made being a quality engineer easy in comparison to other places.
Support from plant manager and other to "fix" problems and make them go away. Corrective actions were the plants highest priority and got fixed in days, not weeks or months.

ConsCulture among some management of the "cool" club.
Quality manager thought he was great, but really was the "weakest link" in the management team.
This plant closed in 2009 due to difficult times in automotive due to recession.

Advice to Senior ManagementSteering wheel business is now in the war zone of Reynosa, Mexico over Autoliv- Columbia City and Autoliv- Queretaro, Mexico which have both closed or are closing. This move to Reynosa looks good on paper, but seems so non-representative of Autoliv's core values of concern for their employees. I have heard stories of fear for life of engineers and unqualified staff at border plant.

Good opportunity through advancement if the hard work is put in
Goal oriented company which has helped to cement it's future as the best in the business
