    Pros

    Great people, challenging work tasks, flexible schedule. You are given the opportunity to get your hands on all sorts of technology.

    Pretty low starting salary. Also you rarely get the quartet profit sharing even though they made it sound like a huge perk before I started.

    I worked at Autoliv (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work for someone with a high school diploma. A lot of available hours and willing to pay overtime.

    Cons

    There is a very low cieling for workers. The work can be very repetitive. Quite a few times in the day waiting for the product.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to keep employees better focused while not engaged with the product. Follow up on all the safety programs that have been put in place.

    I have been working at Autoliv full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits for one that doesn't have a degree. Even better pay for someone that does. It's a good place to work for someone just getting out of high school. They do pay for schooling in the fields that can be used at Autoliv. For those that want/like over time, there is a lot of it.

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism. In many ways, it's not what you know, but who you know. Always trying to cut down on time to build a part, making less people to do more and getting hurt. When they do get hurt, they try everything in the power to make it look like it is not their fault and not pay for medical. The people on the production floor (who works the hardest (if it weren't for these people there wouldn't be and Autoliv)) get paid the least. The cap out after three years, were as the rest of Autoliv gets raises depending on their work ethnics. Overall morale of the place is pretty low. There is a lot of over time. Sometimes, too much over time.

    Advice to Management

    Talk more to the people on the production floor. The morale of the place needs to be brought up. There are people there that have worked at Autoliv for 10+ years and getting hurt. Too many people are getting put on modified duty, "healed" and put back on the floor, only to go back onto modified duty a month later. Some even get let go because "this isn't the right job for them." Look into this more. There is a lot of favoritism all around that makes it hard for a lot of people to any promotions. Find out why. Most of all, boost the morale!
