    Autoliv is an excellent company to work for. The pay is good and they have good work/life benefits such as vacation time, a gym, and flexible hours. They treat employees well. Job stability is good. Co-workers are very nice.The work is often interesting involving automobiles and safety, as well as important work. The management is responsive to employee concerns.

    I have been working at Autoliv as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the work environment at Autoliv. The group of guys I work with are very helpful and very driven to do a good job. I also love the work we do. Where else can you blow stuff up, film it with a high speed camera, and watch the results so you can do it again. Super fun stuff.

    Cons

    The only downside for me is the location. I am used to living in a small town and Autoliv is located in a big city.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing because it seems to be working great. Lots of happy employees.
