    Pros

    I worked in Autoliv TR. There is real professional environment here. Global culture is high. It is important to give good training to employees for them.

    Cons

    Upper management and department leaders doesn't support interns adequetly. Recruitment process isn't clear. There was somehow inadequate interns.

    Former Employee - Coordinator in Ogden, UT

    I worked at Autoliv full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are better then most employers, but a cost a little more every year and now cost above average. Decent wages but top out quickly for workers without some kind of degree. Education assistance is a nice benefit. Good and cheap in house Cafe.

    Cons

    Upper management and HR seem to be a little to "equal" oppertunity. If you can't check off at least one box on the list of possible minorites and /or dicriminated groups ( i.e. race, gender, sexaul orintation), you're not condisered for promotion unless none applied. If they need to trim fat and your boss doesn't care for you he/she will find a reason to fire you instead of doing a RIF and pay seperation benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the best person for the job regardless if is just another middle age married straight white guy. Don't be affraid to face baseless accusations of discrimination when you pick the best applicant.
