    Pros

    Decent benefits, friendly co-workers, OK pay

    Cons

    Internal red tape often gets in the way of getting things done. Management is rarely helpful until the issue is red-hot. There is a system for everything but nobody knows where, what, why or how to use it properly. Consequently, systems are often times skirted in order to get things done. Raises are rare and barely keep up with inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to how systems are working between facilities and departments. Keep processes that add value and eliminate those that do not. Design systems for the typical work flow, not for the exception.

    I worked at Autoliv full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, you're on your own. It's a job. Not the best job, but it's a job. Looking for better work.

    Cons

    Nobody gives you any advice on your work. You're on your own without assistance. Figure out your own problems

    Advice to Management

    Three weeks is not a long enough probation period!

    I have been working at Autoliv full-time

    Pros

    - Seems like the company is growing at a very fast rate with many career opperunties (if management would you switch)
    - Very helpful co-workers

    Cons

    - Very fast pace work envonirment, not much time to really learn or get trained
    - Not much appreciation of employees from what I have experienced
    - Seems like management does not want to improve faclities/test labs even though the company is growing at a fast rate and the programs are worth a lot of money
    - No good profit sharing/bonus
    - Seems like management is hesitant to let people move within the company and when they do allow it, it can take months if not a year to transfer

    Advice to Management

    - Appreciate your employees
    - Invest in the people and work place
    - Allow people to transfer within the company easier, it's nice to keep hardworking people rather than letting them go.

    Pros

    Great health benefits. Holiday pay. 401k match. Purchase vacation option.

    Cons

    Base pay was low; although benefits make up for some of that low base pay. Work life balance was horrendous, constantly on the phone during home life and weekends. Communication was laughable bad, upper management did not clearly convey desired expectations and constantly changes their minds. I asked about my future in the company and possibly futures raises and I was all but told that unless I go into supervision or management I would not be able to get more than the standard raise per year (no more than 3%)even with bumping up pay grades. Human Resources were completely cold and unhelpful in most cases. I would not recommend working for this company, at least not on the manufacturing side. The product design of things might be better.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear and concise goals. Follow through on your promises. Communicate to your subordinates. Follow the chain of command; don't undermine middle supervisors and managers.

    Pros

    They have a Clean environment .

    Cons

    HR is corrupted, many managers have been infected by this corruption and uses Anyone for a fall guy when they don't do their jobs...

    Advice to Management

    Clean out all corrupted management and those that follow them let them go! The company will thrive so much more and save a lot of money when they (Derek & dean weaver), stop thieving from the company!

    I have been working at Autoliv full-time

    Pros

    Embedded side a lot of opportunity. good company if you are fresher.

    Cons

    Management is worst here. they are very lazy. If you have any concern no body work on that. Any process here takes 2 months. HR are worst people I have ever meet. they are very rude and act like a dictator. If you need to get any money(reimbursement etc.) minimum it takes 2 month that when you keep asking about it otherwise they will never give you. HR never reply on your mail until you keep president in CC.

    Advice to Management

    Think about employees
