    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.

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

    Pros

    Lots of paid holidays, half of all paid holidays are at xmas!

    Cons

    Repetitive work. Poor training. Big company. Not very personal.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize modern training procedures to retain new employees. More transparency between HR and production associates.

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

    Pros

    The company provides affordable Healthcare options and has solid Human Resources Policies that are enforced consistently across the board.

    Cons

    Autoliv believes that each entry level employee is expendable and although they have company values, the people who are promoted tend to bully or make other people miserable to get ahead making sure that the people who get ahead create an unhealthy authoritarian based culture. In short, the company values never reach the production floor.

    They work people on their production floor 7 plus days straight but stagger the schedule so that they can avoid paying overtime. (7 on 2 off 8 on 4 off) If they are short-handed then expect to work months straight, vacation denied, though thats the only time overtime is paid.

    They give out jackets, t-shirts etc., but make you pay for it with a end of fiscal year "gift tax".

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management is able to have a quality of life far superior at the expense of the workers on the production floor. Work-life balance is nearly impossible at the poverty level that the production force must survive at. Also, quit hiring Engineers that are unable to design from an End User standpoint. It takes more than the ability to complete a task. The program at UsU is insufficient to that end in particular.

    I have been working at Autoliv part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a part timer, Autoliv only has us work weekends for 8 hours each day. This works perfectly with my school schedule, allowing me to focus on school during the week and work during the weekend.

    Cons

    It doesn't feel like management cares much about us. Job security isn't always a for sure thing. That is for part time, at least.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the production associates a little more. The job already isn't the greatest. Please don't make it worse by making us stress about job security.

    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 management team that encourage team work. Many people employed 20+ years. Great colleagues to work with. Great health and education benefits.

    Cons

    Because of using lean processes this sometimes makes it so you have to do more work with limited resources and still meet deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    The management team continues to improve the working environment. It's great being able to work with them.
