    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!

    I worked at Autoliv full-time

    Pros

    Great quality upper management, project managers, supervisors and engineers.
    Engineers were recognized & compensated for their contributions.
    Great team feel in most departments I encountered.

    Cons

    Benefits started to get more expensive -- went from leading the industry with the best benefits [to attract top employees] to matching the competition.
    Some elitist was divisive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow the, "We are better than..." mentality to overtake a great environment to work in. Nip it in the bud. I know that there is allot of new business coming in, but don't allow it to cause you to loose sight of your greatest asset -- your employees.

    I worked at Autoliv full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great environment, managers are great to work with. A lot of room to experiment and do your own thing. Once you have the trust of your manager, you can really get a lot done in a just a summer. I felt like I was a necessary part of the team when I left.

    Cons

    It takes some time to get used to not having a clear objective. It also takes some time to get the trust of managers and engineers.
