    I have been working at Autoliv

    Pros

    Friendly people, A lot of room to explore, experiment. and learn. As long as you get your job done, everyone is happy.

    Cons

    Not much mentor ship. Mostly on your own to learn. Although they are picking up on that.

    I have been working at Autoliv full-time

    Pros

    Depth of technical knowledge and experience of retained employees, still better-than-average corporate culture sincerely emphasizing continuous improvement and ethical behavior, new initiatives to maintain quality and technical edge, management priorities are conservative yet growth-oriented, opportunities for global assignments

    Cons

    Check-in-the-box mentality has been an unpleasant side effect of global standardization, no formal mentorship program or recognition of the benefits of one, somewhat alarming recent increase in turnover mostly among promising younger and mid-career employees, relatively flat structure can make lateral moves enticing, but limit opportunities for upward movement, quest to become a "global company" is straining the culture that once made the company great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue pushing conservative fiscal management along with policies to encourage technological innovation and quality improvements. Do not sacrifice the culture that has been nurtured over decades for quick growth opportunities in developing markets, or risk even larger scale quality and ethics problems than seen recently. Develop and retain young talent with a strong mentorship program and rotational opportunities outside those provided to co-ops.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Autoliv full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have a great manager and the pay is pretty good. The hours are very stable, and there is always a problem to solve and work to be done, which makes things interesting.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't provide a clear direction for the company. The corporate initiatives often seem like a wasted effort, without very practical or clear objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would be clearer to all employees the direction the ship is headed instead of the corporate non-sense talk.

    Stable environment that has allowed me to try many organizations functional areas. I have worked within purchasing, operations, customer accounts and design engineering.

    You have to find you own place within the organization, no one is looking out for you. Even after returning from an overseas assignments, ex patriots are not given support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many ways to achieve our goals. They want to dictate both process and results. This hold back innovative solutions.

    Health Benefits, flexible when going to school.
