    Pros

    had a lot of freedom and great colleagues.

    Cons

    I had to organize most things on my own and that is how irrelevant and small things consumed some of my time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    employees need plenty of things every day, during measurements, for common lab work or at their desk.. Make a single person responsible for it and continuously provide these things.

    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
