    Pros

    They offer a reasonably good benefit package, 401K, free financial consultant and onsite workshops with guest speakers from various organizations such as the American Red Cross, Race for the Cure, and United Way.

    Cons

    There are no sick days, no comp time -one must use personal or vacation days to make up for any lost time. Management does not lend itself well to assisting their employees with problems or issues.
    Personality is rewarded more often than performance.

    Pros

    The culture of the company, and the vast majority of people you work with are encouraging and helpful. Also, saving lives for a living isn't bad either!

    Cons

    Some might not like the small family owned feel (even though it's a global/international company), also the salaries/benefits aren't as competitive as some other options on the market

    Advice to Management

    Engineering management is great! Though it seems like sometimes people leave for higher pay elsewhere, which may be normal for any company

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Wonderful work experience in a lean manufacturing environment with cutting edge automation technology.

    Cons

    Industry is very fickle. Slightest economic downturn, and you could be looking for work. Industry extremely quality-focused, which can make work very stressful. Typically, don't pay very well.

    Advice to Management

    With a desire to attract and retain top talent, it is imperative to be above average in compensation. This has historically not been the case.
