    I have been working at Autoliv full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement, works with schooling shedules, decent health benefits, non-rotating shifts, opportunities for advancement, team environment, almost always opportunities for overtime work

    Cons

    As with anywhere, Autoliv plays the political game. Pay is at or below averages in my area for Industrial Automation Maintenence Technicians. Different shifts are treated very differently, the bias between management and the different shifts causes tensions.

    Advice to Management

    Different shifts are treated very differently, the bias between management and the different shifts causes tensions from time to time. This is not selective to my position. All non-dayshift employees lack support, and sometimes are not as respected as counterparts on the perfered shift, despite added responsibilities that arise from handling situations when Management/HR/Engineering aren't present to make the calls.
