    I worked at Autoliv full-time

    Pros

    Great quality upper management, project managers, supervisors and engineers. Engineers were recognized & compensated for their contributions. Great team feel in most departments I encountered.

    Cons

    Benefits started to get more expensive -- went from leading the industry with the best benefits [to attract top employees] to matching the competition. Some elitist was divisive.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow the, "We are better than..." mentality to overtake a great environment to work in. Nip it in the bud. I know that there is allot of new business coming in, but don't allow it to cause you to loose sight of your greatest asset -- your employees.

    Pros

    Interesting problems to solve for the automotive field. Cutting edge technologies. The products are in high demand moving forward.

    Managerial incompetence and cronyism at nearly every level. Jumping from one crisis to the next putting out fires because of poor planning by managers.

    Get program schedules under control so you can stop abusing employees.

    I have been working at Autoliv full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Excellent engineers, focused on advanced development.

    Cons

    Terribly managed, very political. Seniority is favored over talent. Every man for himself. Turn around rate of about 2-3 years. Frequent conflict of interests.

    Advice to Management

    Promote skilled talent. Focus on retention. Hiring from outside to replace top management is detrimental and demotivating to staff.

    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
