    I worked at Autoliv full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    nice bunch of people
    a lot of international people and that is pretty much it
    somewhat good pay package, if you got good negotiation skills

    Cons

    -twelve hour shifts in the weekend, that are re-compensated in 3free days (though in money that would mean more) - but the framework is illegal for that
    -no professionalism
    -HR employees discussing sometimes their processes of recruiting in front of others
    -long time to get to the office, no paid extra hours
    -expectation to stay over working hours, but no clear statement that transportation would be paid for doing this when staying over hours as the offices are far out of town and no public transport available
    -no real training, just inside - so no possibility of certification training and no recreational facilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    might want to pay more attention why all your good people are leaving and you only stick with the lot, and stop favoritism and nepotism.

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

    Pros

    Autoliv is filled with great motivated employees, pays well, and allows you a great deal of freedom.

    Cons

    Autoliv is has an extremely regionalized culture and they should have been a global company for quite some time. They do not have good software to assist the purchasing department in North America, and all regions operate on different web based servers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the ideas within the company, spend the money to improve internal tools.
