    Pros

    I worked in Autoliv India kundalahalli.No single pros working here

    Cons

    very bad higher management and HR.A person who does nt know to speak English is being called a HR here.too much of internal politics.no growth for the employees.no clear roadmap and very bad work life balance.They dont treat you as a human being at all..Very bad culture.No single HR policy to support employees.Compensation is just OK.But dont get tempted to the offer they give you while joining and get lost there without direction.Dont spoil your future.No good work to learn and even people there had no learning attitude or growing attitude.Seriously a sick company and not even a startup company can be as bad as this company.All the time the higher management gives the excuse that the company is a start up even though they have passed 3years.But they dont agree to the fact the other start up companies are doing much better than them.Never seen such a useless managers in my life..They treat you as slaves.They dont provide you any minimum basic facilities.some times even the drinking water is a big issue there.no canteen and no transport facility. Very less leaves per year and if you fall sick for 10 days, they dont support you instead your employment is in danger.They dont have good business and the work they get is junk work and u do them is slavery, not employment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please wake up to the outside world. And treat the employees well.They are professsionals not the slaves

    Pros

    They are very open to implementing changes. The people are motivated to work together as a strong team. Leadership has very strong experience in this field.

    Cons

    Sometimes customers can be demanding, and you need to go above and beyond what you would normally do in order to keep them happy.

    Good opportunities to grow in the organisation.
    Challenging work in product development areas.
    Good Pay package compared to other companies which offer a similar job profile.

    Work atmosphere where I worked isn't great at all.

    Too much work at times. Almost everyone in the organisation is overloaded.
    No recreational facilities around the place where i worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to create a better working environment and co-ordination between different departments. Office is in a very distant location from the city. Need some recreational facilities. Need to add more resource to manage work effectively

    Pros

    overall an Awesome working atmosphere

    Cons

    Needs to improve on facilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A slight improvement in infrastructure like a small gym, a small recreation hall or things like that can make a bigger impact on employees satisfaction towards company thereby making it a 100% perfect company in all ways .

    Pros

    Interesting work, good people but some departments have little room for growth. Watch out for groups that report directly to European managers as it tends to create a difficult situation with employee trying to serve many needs with little support.

    Cons

    Can be very stressful with long hours and many demands. Fluctuations in economy can cause significant impact but this is true for any automotive manufacturer.

    Former Employee - Radar DSP Engineer in Lowell, MA (US)

    I worked at Autoliv as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Not very stressful environment
    -The managers are nice
    -Cafeteria on top floor
    -Profit sharing for employees

    Cons

    - Company wants to hire through temp agencies as contractors (no benefits), and keep you waiting for a perm position for a LONG time, even though the temp agency promises 6 months at the beginning.
    - Technology isn't evolving very fast
    - Salaries are not very high
    - Lots of meetings
    - A bit disorganized. People get pulled from project to project, always saying it's crisis mode, all hands on board. You never really get deep into your work.

    I worked at Autoliv full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The lean processes of the company are a benchmark for the automotive industry. I had learn a lot from production control, logistics and assembly. My manager was a great mentor. The environment of working there was also great, with a lot of people helping, specially at the USA facilities.

    Cons

    Bad Salary and too much rotation of personnel. HR are their weak management process. The last factory manager was not the adequate leader. during 2years we had 2 factory manager, and every time the leadership and human quality was decreasing
