    Current Employee - Project Manager in Newport News, VA

    I have been working at Continental full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, high volume work with multiple customer bases.

    Cons

    Most of the people there are unhappy and it shows. It's very hard to be motivated at a company with such a negative employee culture. The basis of most of the production is of the mindset to make everything just good enough to get it out the door as soon as possible. Quality is sacrificed for volume of work. Also, very little room for advancement unless you want to move to China.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your foot down to maintain quality, and to quit shipping poor product. Why do you think there are so many automotive recalls?

    Former Employee - Anonymous in Deer Park, IL

    I worked at Continental full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company had great health benefits and the salaries were very comparable to other companies in the industry.

    Cons

    Some of the employee feedback was not received well or really reviewed. Also the accrual for vacation is not a great system to have in place for vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to listen to the employees a little more and less micromanaging of employees.
