    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 .

    I worked at Autoliv as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I loved the people that I worked with which made my job enjoyable. They don't have a set intern program compared to other employers, but it's up to you to stay busy and find things to make yourself useful.

    Cons

    The first few works were very slow getting situated with what I was going to be doing. I ended up reporting to about four people. Two of them kept me very busy and two of them were somewhat non-existent. I had to manage my time and stay busy.

    I worked at Autoliv as an intern

    Pros

    - Gain experience with embedded systems
    - Respectful environment
    - Engineers are willing to help you out

    Cons

    - Internship was slow to start; they get you materials after you arrive, and don't prepare them beforehand
    - Sometimes projects seem to lack direction
    - Sometimes assigned with busywork- not ideal for an engineering internship
    - Some work did not require an engineering degree to handle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to organize what you want from your interns, prepare objectives and tools required beforehand

    I worked at Autoliv as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work environment was very collaborative. Great mentors to work with and learn on the job. Multiple divisions that Autoliv works on, gives the employee exposure to many fields.

    Cons

    As an intern sometimes work was too less. However, this was probably only the result of some circumstances with the division I was working with and would not file as a con in general.
