    A good internship that introduced me to the OEM supply without being overwhelmed.

    Internship (Former Employee)
    Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsYou are working in the automotive industry on new technologies. Good training is offered in many different areas. Office culture is friendly and welcoming.

    ConsNot really many cons to working here. The company values are sound. The perks are good but nothing outrageous.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Very good job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompensation, work environment, freedom, flexibility, and opportunity for advancement

    ConsQuality. I think quality suffers as a result of the freedom aspect. They haven't figured out a bulletproof system to make sure every product meets the same standard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to value employee wellness and morale; this separates Conti from the litany of auto suppliers and attracts grateful minds seeking respite

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

    Wonderful experience - encouraging setting, culture and colleagues

    Internship (Former Employee)
    Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsInvestment in personal development within organization. If the job doesn't call for interacting beyond your business unit, organization leaders and workers are kind and willing to network.

    ConsGender diversity - while the culture is friendly an dforporate setting represented by mostly males.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in expanding use of social media within organization to broaden name recognition and internal networking. For example, promote Conti-intern newsletter on Instagram and facebook.

    You are the owner of your career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsThe growth opportunities within Continental are endless.

    You have to be engaged, motivated, high performing, and up for the challenge. Growth and career is in your own hands. The key for success is that you take the initiative.

    The management support you'll receive is tremendous. The training opportunities are impressive. You are part of a strong global team with all the challenges and opportunities coming with it.

    ConsSome of the processes are too complex and slowing us down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue pushing the core values and leading by example!

    Troy, MI

    ProsThere is a variety of projects to work for and the salary and benefit packages are very good

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare the company objectives and you may even get help with new project quoting and insider insight.

    Warm, friendly people

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Auburn Hills, MI

    ProsEveryone who works here was very helpful and committed to helping interns settle in and learn the ropes. There is a system in place to maintain relationships with high-performing interns, with the possibility of a job offer out of school. Intern responsibilities are usually relevant to the field of work, rather than performing menial tasks, and managers are happy to explain the way aspects of the corporation works.

    ConsManagers are usually pretty busy with their own work, so there are occasions where intern work may not be immediately assigned.

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