    Former Employee - Quality Engineer in Tremonton, UT
    Former Employee - Quality Engineer in Tremonton, UT

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

    Pros

    Lot's of training opportunity - even if not directly related to your position, generous compensation for new engineers, opportunity to move around in the company to find a position you enjoy. Autoliv does not cut corners when it comes to the quality of their product, which helps morale.

    Cons

    Automotive industry can be demanding at inconvenient times. Sometimes you have to wait your turn to get financial resources to improve equipment. This leads some employees to feel burnt out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest time in your new employees. I had a very positive experience because my managers were genuinely interested in whether I felt happy and capable in my role.

    I have been working at Autoliv as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the work environment at Autoliv. The group of guys I work with are very helpful and very driven to do a good job. I also love the work we do. Where else can you blow stuff up, film it with a high speed camera, and watch the results so you can do it again. Super fun stuff.

    Cons

    The only downside for me is the location. I am used to living in a small town and Autoliv is located in a big city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing because it seems to be working great. Lots of happy employees.

    Former Employee - Safety Engineer in Tijuana, Baja California (Mexico)

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

    Pros

    Company pries its self in being an Employee Safety first philosophy, GREAT PEOPLE, GREAT PLACE TO WORK. Yes. They have got the BEST OF THE BEST in their field be it Safety or Machine Fabrication. One of the TRUE GOOD Companys that DOES WHAT IT SAYS. Employees are No.1 in Safety Issues and they get a chance to have a SAY IN to what is best in their daily rutines and production experience always welcomed.

    Cons

    Need to work more on being Individual and to let Safety DO ITS JOB. Not from the blechers/bench but from the FIELD advantage. They have got GREAT EMPLOYEES, but Safety is always on the bench. Waiting to STOP THE FIRES, not do something before hand. No Manager would approve something unless he saw it and understand it first. They do not let Safety get their hands on the situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more PROACTIVE, stop being a MICROMANAGER.....experience is best when it is left to the PROFESSIONALS.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, plenty of opportunities for growth and advancement, good training programs. Managers are genuine and looking to promote people within the company. Company culture is very good and very strong.

    Cons

    Very process oriented, too many approvals needed for almost everything. Sometimes it takes a long time to fix something that should be easily fixed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow and develop high potential candidates. The company will need the next round of mid-level managers quickly!
