    Pros

    Great people here, everyone is helpful and friendly. All of the departments work together to accomplish the job at hand.

    Cons

    No one wants to move to Chicago, but it is being forced upon us. A lot of good people are bailing. Continental was a great company. Still a great place to work, while it lasts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treating your employees with dignity and respect requires you to keep your management people informed and payed more than those whom they manage.

    I worked at Continental Airlines

    Pros

    Company tenets of Working Together and Dignity and Respect made for one of the best corporate culture environments I have ever worked in. It worked because it was followed by everyone, from top management to every level throughout the company.

    Cons

    Remains to be seen whether the merging of legacy Continental culture with the more aggressive United corporate culture will work in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dignity, respect and working together go a long way towards making the average employee feel vested in their work and the company goals - try to maintain as much of that culture as you can as the merger proceeds.

    Pros

    The benefits were great at Continental Airlines. We got to see a lot of the world.

    Cons

    Advancement is based on who you know, not what you know. The merger will dampen it even further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the original Continental Airlines company culture.

    I worked at Continental Airlines

    Pros

    -Work-Life balance was incredible. Time off is very flexible, whenever needed. The first manager I had would let us go early sometimes for happy hour! (too bad things didnt' stay that way)
    -Travel benefits are unmatched.
    -Lot of good people to work with (depending on group)

    Cons

    -Salary was mediocre compared to industry average. Lot of "new hires" fresh out of college.
    -Difficult to move up the ladder.
    -A lot depends on the group you are in. My first team was incredible, I loved it. Then they had cutbacks and I moved into a group that was horrible. Can be "clickish".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get caught up in the corporate madness. Remember your employees are what run your company.

    Pros

    The people are terrific and when mananger is lacking others step up to the plate to assist you in doing an excellent job for your co-workers and customers. The opportunity to work for an organization that expects you to work with the same dignity and respect we all should have learned as a child and a must in the house.

    Cons

    The workload is extremely heavy do to continuous cut-backs. Doing the work of 2-3 people without additional compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust is a two way street.
