Rewarding and challenging work in automotive safety and meeting the demands of an increasingly global corporate culture.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Autoliv full-time

ProsDepth of technical knowledge and experience of retained employees, still better-than-average corporate culture sincerely emphasizing continuous improvement and ethical behavior, new initiatives to maintain quality and technical edge, management priorities are conservative yet growth-oriented, opportunities for global assignments

ConsCheck-in-the-box mentality has been an unpleasant side effect of global standardization, no formal mentorship program or recognition of the benefits of one, somewhat alarming recent increase in turnover mostly among promising younger and mid-career employees, relatively flat structure can make lateral moves enticing, but limit opportunities for upward movement, quest to become a "global company" is straining the culture that once made the company great

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue pushing conservative fiscal management along with policies to encourage technological innovation and quality improvements. Do not sacrifice the culture that has been nurtured over decades for quick growth opportunities in developing markets, or risk even larger scale quality and ethics problems than seen recently. Develop and retain young talent with a strong mentorship program and rotational opportunities outside those provided to co-ops.

Good 'Ol boy production company...

Production Associate (Current Employee)

I have been working at Autoliv full-time for more than a year

ProsPay is good. Benefits are great. Standard production job.

Advice to Senior ManagementGraveyard is a shift that works too. Please treat your employees on that shift like real people.

too many cheifs to go thru

Machinist (Former Employee)
Ogden, UT (US)

I worked at Autoliv full-time for less than a year

ProsJob security, cleaninness of the shop, equipment

ConsToo many politics, i was hired by a third company, reviews (90 days) where done by someone who wasn't even in the shop. I could never discuse a salary adjustment with my supervisor or even a manager.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut the middle man on the reviews, salary discussion has to be done by direct supervisor or direct supervisor has to be present at the time of review and able to know the pay rate of employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
