    Pros

    * Safety Technology. ore stress on Quality
    * Salary is more than average salary of Bangalore based Automotive embedded companies
    * Not much pressure
    * Small teams and hence get to work on multiple modules

    Cons

    * Good for Freshmen - as more development projects are small change packages or maintenance activity
    * Good for Testing - as most of the projects handled in Bangalore are for V&V. Get to work on great tools
    * Experienced Software developer will find it saturated soon.
    * Infrastructure could have been better considering this is a MNC, No proper canteen facilities

    I worked at Autoliv full-time (more than 3 years)

    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

    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 full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Lot's of training opportunity - even if not directly related to your position, generous compensation for new engineers, opportunity to move around in the company to find a position you enjoy. Autoliv does not cut corners when it comes to the quality of their product, which helps morale.

    Cons

    Automotive industry can be demanding at inconvenient times. Sometimes you have to wait your turn to get financial resources to improve equipment. This leads some employees to feel burnt out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest time in your new employees. I had a very positive experience because my managers were genuinely interested in whether I felt happy and capable in my role.
