    I have been working at Autoliv full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, quarterly bonuses

    Cons

    Training is slim to none! Learn on the fly. Up to date electrical and mechanical prints are non existent

    Advice to Management

    Techs need resources to troubleshoot and fix machines. It seems that since the company is currently so profitable, this has been forgotten.

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

    Pros

    The health insurance is great, I think I getting a fair wage. I started with 2 weeks of paid vacation, and one week of sick leave. I work a 9 hour day, so I get every other Friday off.

    Cons

    I am on call, so if there is a problem late at night they will be calling me and interrupting my sleep. they also shut down the whole week of the 4th of July. The 4th is a paid holiday, but the rest of the week has to be covered by vacation. Which only leaves me with one week of vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    Give more paid vacation time.

    Technology - saving lives is a satisfying way to spend your career. Your products are designed to prevent injuries, not cause them.
