    I have been working at Autoliv full-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

    Take a deep breath and take some management 101 classes.


  2. Pros

    Excellent work environment, ongoing training, professional development

    Cons

    Ability to solucional several problems

    I worked at Autoliv full-time (Less than a year)

    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!

  5. Good enough for a summer job

    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.

    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

    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

    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.
