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

    Pros

    1) Established name in the industry
    2) Good market coverage
    3) Good international collaboration

    Cons

    1) New passive safety president is killing innovation with restrictive research funding and draining motivation with his low-energy share-holder appeasing attitude.
    2) Too many standards being created and updated constantly with nobody doing any traffic control to make sure the standards do not contradict each other.
    3) Lack of oversight for standards allow many offices / plants to blatantly ignore them.
    4) HR is way too hostile

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking from quarter to quarter-- get out of the fire-fighting attitude. Think of prevention and long term health of the company.

    Pros

    Company outlook is great from a business standpoint. Fair benefits. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    HR is really lost when it comes being an actual resource. Communication from upper management to the production floor is non existent in most cases. Politics.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better wages overall to hourly workers. Ensure training on all shifts are communicated properly.
