    Former Employee - Intern in Southfield, MI (US)

    I worked at Autoliv as an intern for less than a 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.

    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!
