    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.

    Pros

    Overall Laid back work environment
    High job security
    Tuition reimbursement up to $5k per year
    Offers a wide range of learning opportunities
    Medical benefits and partial 401k matching
    Invests back into the company and its employees

    Cons

    Company runs very lean which means there are high expectations per employee
    Medical coverage is through Aetna so it covers nearly nothing short of hospital stays
    Pay tends to be lower than the average for similar positions.
    Very little turn over in positions above entry level

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Aetna, you're paying way too much for worthless insurance.
    Increase pay caps at least at the rate of inflation
