    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 Management

    Three weeks is not a long enough probation period!

  2. Good enough for a summer job

    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.

    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.

  6. Okay place to work, but good luck getting a perm position ...

    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.

    Pros

    I loved the people that I worked with which made my job enjoyable. They don't have a set intern program compared to other employers, but it's up to you to stay busy and find things to make yourself useful.

    Cons

    The first few works were very slow getting situated with what I was going to be doing. I ended up reporting to about four people. Two of them kept me very busy and two of them were somewhat non-existent. I had to manage my time and stay busy.

    Pros

    Management is down to earth, considerate of employee's work/life balance. Work schedule is flexible compare to many other electronics companies in this area

    Cons

    Health benefit is not great

    Advice to Management

    Define the job responsibility of each position clearly, so when there is something come up it's clear where to ask for help.

    - Gain experience with embedded systems
    - Respectful environment
    - Engineers are willing to help you out

    Cons

    - Internship was slow to start; they get you materials after you arrive, and don't prepare them beforehand
    - Sometimes projects seem to lack direction
    - Sometimes assigned with busywork- not ideal for an engineering internship
    - Some work did not require an engineering degree to handle

    Advice to Management

    Take time to organize what you want from your interns, prepare objectives and tools required beforehand

    Pros

    The work environment was very collaborative. Great mentors to work with and learn on the job. Multiple divisions that Autoliv works on, gives the employee exposure to many fields.

    Cons

    As an intern sometimes work was too less. However, this was probably only the result of some circumstances with the division I was working with and would not file as a con in general.
