    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.

    Pros

    The culture of the company, and the vast majority of people you work with are encouraging and helpful. Also, saving lives for a living isn't bad either!

    Cons

    Some might not like the small family owned feel (even though it's a global/international company), also the salaries/benefits aren't as competitive as some other options on the market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engineering management is great! Though it seems like sometimes people leave for higher pay elsewhere, which may be normal for any company

    Pros

    Wonderful work experience in a lean manufacturing environment with cutting edge automation technology.

    Cons

    Industry is very fickle. Slightest economic downturn, and you could be looking for work. Industry extremely quality-focused, which can make work very stressful. Typically, don't pay very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With a desire to attract and retain top talent, it is imperative to be above average in compensation. This has historically not been the case.

    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.

    Pros

    They have good benefits and the holiday shut down is nice when you get almost two weeks off during Christmas.

    Cons

    No corporate structure (atleast where I was). Managment starts to panic easily. The other engineers and managment were condescending and critical at times when it was unnecessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a deep breath and take some management 101 classes.

    Pros

    None, you're on your own. It's a job. Not the best job, but it's a job. Looking for better work.

    Cons

    Nobody gives you any advice on your work. You're on your own without assistance. Figure out your own problems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Three weeks is not a long enough probation period!

    Good enough for a summer job

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.
