    I worked at Autoliv full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked in Autoliv India kundalahalli.No single pros working here

    Cons

    very bad higher management and HR.A person who does nt know to speak English is being called a HR here.too much of internal politics.no growth for the employees.no clear roadmap and very bad work life balance.They dont treat you as a human being at all..Very bad culture.No single HR policy to support employees.Compensation is just OK.But dont get tempted to the offer they give you while joining and get lost there without direction.Dont spoil your future.No good work to learn and even people there had no learning attitude or growing attitude.Seriously a sick company and not even a startup company can be as bad as this company.All the time the higher management gives the excuse that the company is a start up even though they have passed 3years.But they dont agree to the fact the other start up companies are doing much better than them.Never seen such a useless managers in my life..They treat you as slaves.They dont provide you any minimum basic facilities.some times even the drinking water is a big issue there.no canteen and no transport facility. Very less leaves per year and if you fall sick for 10 days, they dont support you instead your employment is in danger.They dont have good business and the work they get is junk work and u do them is slavery, not employment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please wake up to the outside world. And treat the employees well.They are professsionals not the slaves

    The Autoliv experience is eye opening on how many issues this safety giant struggles with.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, friendly co-workers, OK pay

    Cons

    Internal red tape often gets in the way of getting things done. Management is rarely helpful until the issue is red-hot. There is a system for everything but nobody knows where, what, why or how to use it properly. Consequently, systems are often times skirted in order to get things done. Raises are rare and barely keep up with inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to how systems are working between facilities and departments. Keep processes that add value and eliminate those that do not. Design systems for the typical work flow, not for the exception.

    Pros

    Interesting work, good people but some departments have little room for growth. Watch out for groups that report directly to European managers as it tends to create a difficult situation with employee trying to serve many needs with little support.

    Cons

    Can be very stressful with long hours and many demands. Fluctuations in economy can cause significant impact but this is true for any automotive manufacturer.

    Pros

    There is always a problem to solve and work to be done, which makes your days short.
    Worked within engineering, production and maintenance.

    Cons

    Upper management likes politics instead of results, which makes everyone taking care of their own back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people.

    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.

    Pros

    the medical insurence is good. the dental is good. that is prity much all i can think of to tell you the truth.

    Cons

    the people in charge dont care about you. All they want is as much material they can push out the door. If for some reason you are incharge they want you to dedicate youre whole life to them.
    like meeting once a week schooling that wont matter any where but there. home work FROM YOUR JOB! really fpr production workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to start caring about youre people. theybuild devices to save the people in this country.
    Dont you think that if you treat them good you get a better product.

    Former Employee - Radar DSP Engineer in Lowell, MA

    I worked at Autoliv as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Not very stressful environment
    -The managers are nice
    -Cafeteria on top floor
    -Profit sharing for employees

    Cons

    - Company wants to hire through temp agencies as contractors (no benefits), and keep you waiting for a perm position for a LONG time, even though the temp agency promises 6 months at the beginning.
    - Technology isn't evolving very fast
    - Salaries are not very high
    - Lots of meetings
    - A bit disorganized. People get pulled from project to project, always saying it's crisis mode, all hands on board. You never really get deep into your work.
