    Pros

    Good work life balance, plenty of opportunities for growth and advancement, good training programs. Managers are genuine and looking to promote people within the company. Company culture is very good and very strong.

    Cons

    Very process oriented, too many approvals needed for almost everything. Sometimes it takes a long time to fix something that should be easily fixed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow and develop high potential candidates. The company will need the next round of mid-level managers quickly!

    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.

    Take care of your people.

    I worked at Autoliv full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are better then most employers, but a cost a little more every year and now cost above average. Decent wages but top out quickly for workers without some kind of degree. Education assistance is a nice benefit. Good and cheap in house Cafe.

    Cons

    Upper management and HR seem to be a little to "equal" oppertunity. If you can't check off at least one box on the list of possible minorites and /or dicriminated groups ( i.e. race, gender, sexaul orintation), you're not condisered for promotion unless none applied. If they need to trim fat and your boss doesn't care for you he/she will find a reason to fire you instead of doing a RIF and pay seperation benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the best person for the job regardless if is just another middle age married straight white guy. Don't be affraid to face baseless accusations of discrimination when you pick the best applicant.
