    I have been working at Autoliv full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Health Benefits...on site PA's and Nurses that employee and employee's family can go to. This is a great benefit that I will miss if I leave the company.

    Cons

    Raises barely match inflation. Ran the numbers and due to inflation I haven't had an increase in spending power in more than ten years, even with promotions. I've been with the company about 20 years. I use to have great admiration for this company for many years, but all I can think about now is pursuing opportunities outside the company.

    Advice to Management

    The budget for merit increases decreased dramatically in 2008/09 due to downturn in economy...this is to be expected. But for the last several years, Autoliv has been more profitable then ever before and the merit budget is still where it was during the recession...this is just downright morally and ethically wrong! And they decreased dramatically the amount of vacation employees can carry over each year...by approximately 50%! Profits keep soaring at the expense of the employees making the profits!

    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 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.

    Pros

    Pays decent and always hiring (probably a reason for that). Matches retirement, and willing to help pay for schooling if you are there over a year. Decent benefits.

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

    Pros

    Good health benefits. Average of 12 paid holidays.. PTO. 401k match. Purchased vacation option.

    Cons

    Low base pay versus market competition.
    Upper management not committed to ensuring goals and objectives are effectively cascaded.
    Management by objective versus leadership by strategy.
    Poor work life balance.
    Kettering graduates given seniority.
    HR very cold and disconnected.
    Gainshare metrics contain metrics that are out of the circle of influence of the individual employee.
    Departments are siloed.
    Promotions and merits based on nepotism versus results.

    Advice to Management

    Let people pursue their passions and empower them to do so! Gut the authoritative management focused objectives at the expense of their employees.

    Pros

    the medical insurence is good. the dental is good. that is prity much all i can think of to tell you the truth.

    Cons

    the people in charge dont care about you. All they want is as much material they can push out the door. If for some reason you are incharge they want you to dedicate youre whole life to them.
    like meeting once a week schooling that wont matter any where but there. home work FROM YOUR JOB! really fpr production workers.

    Advice to Management

    You need to start caring about youre people. theybuild devices to save the people in this country.
    Dont you think that if you treat them good you get a better product.

    Pros

    There is always a problem to solve and work to be done, which makes your days short.
    Worked within engineering, production and maintenance.

    Cons

    Upper management likes politics instead of results, which makes everyone taking care of their own back.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people.
