    Pros

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

    Cons

    Quality. 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 ManagementAdvice

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