    Pros

    Hard work and dedication is rewarded here. If you are looking for an easy job this is not the place for you. Even with all of the hard work, we still manage to have fun here. You will always see a smiling face or a helpful hand.
    The benefits are great. I love the wellness reimbursement and massages.

    Cons

    The entry-level pay is realistic and fair. If you put in the effort, you will absolutely be promoted or given a raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your employees. We see that you are and we appreciate it.

    Pros

    Not too far from home.

    Cons

    Desperate for a job? Can't bare driving an extra 30-60 minutes to Seattle everyday for the $15 minimum wage?
    Then come work at Continuant!
    Where they expect nothing but excellence and fake smiles daily!
    You even get paid a wopping $10 an hour! Oh that may seem low, but they have ohhhh so many enticing benefits for you to stay for the long haul!
    Spa benefits,paid childcare, and even a gym membership! Group activities to spark creativity for the overall benefit of the company, and the daily tease of that promotion you want.
    The only catch is you have to make it through a probation phase. Don't worry though. No company with INTEGRITY would ever let someone go a month prior to the probation phase being over.
    And I'm saying that with all sincerity, but INTEGRITY is something this company lacks sadly.
    They'll meticulously count the hours you have, and let you go just short of enough hours to get unemployment.
    They preach of all the money that YOU helped brought in. Even tease of a bonus.
    Then cut you off without a second thought, and claim 'downsizing'.
    The shadiness of this company in that aspect is quite sickening, but very corporate like.

    If you do decide you need this job. Make sure you are drug free. They drug test once you start your first day. Save yourself the time and embarrassment from being the person they gossip about that day.
    Work somewhere else, where you'll be appreciated. Sincerely.
    I hope this helps someone.

    Leading the horse with a carrot only works for so long. People catch on. Stop lying.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working here because the people were amazing. Most of the Technicians were also fun to talk to. There is an allotment and they let you sign up with LA Fitness and have it taken out of your allotment each month. Also good for Massages. I loved that feature.

    Cons

    The challenges I faced as a CSR was the Technical Vocabulary. But being a CSR that is not your job and as time went by it was east to learn from repeating it over and over.
    The pay could be better too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel as though the management does a great job to make us feel comfortable. I enjoyed how nice they were and how they were always willing to help when needed.

    Pros

    The experience gained he is unmatched anywhere else. They give a vast amount of responsibilities to entry level employees and give them a great opportunity to gain experience that is impossible to gain anywhere else at an entry level.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work hard. Keep your head down and power through, the reward and advancement following will be immense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to create advancement opportunities to those who work hard.

    Pros

    Everyone that I worked with at Continuant was very friendly, helpful, and patient. In the short time that I was with the company, I made some great friends and professional connections. The perks are great too, onsite massage therapist, free gym, employer paid benefits, and the potential for a lot of vacation time.
    I learned so mucha dn grew as a personand a professional in so many ways! The management was amazing and the structure of the company was very organized and had a great flow to it.

    Cons

    The section I worked in was a 24/5 section. The schedule changed every 3 weeks. I would have to work overnights for 3 weeks, followed by swing for 3 weeks. This didn't work for my family.
    The pay could've been a bit better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not anything big, maybe let employees bid for the shift they want and compensate the ones that are working the night/swing shift at the time.

    Pros

    Decent medical/dental benefits, but still not that great.

    Cons

    Almost every single individual at this company is underpaid, except for the upper management. The owner doesn't care about the people actually doing the leg-work for his company. Most regular employees are more well educated than any of the management. You are in constant fear of losing your job over things out of your control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in your work-force. You have handfuls of hard-working, educated, skilled people and none of them are being treated properly. The low wages and negative environment is going to push them all away one by one.

    NOC Engineer

    Pros

    Ability to work from home, paycheck, and benefits.

    Cons

    No reviews, raises, advancement, bonuses. Management does not care if the company improves or changes. A lot of turnover in employees because they can get better pay elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your promises to employees. They work hard for you and you do not care!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Fife, WA

    Pros

    You will be worked hard, and you will have high expectations put on yourself. These are not unrealistic and enable you to work at your highest potential. Great benefits: massage therapists onsite 4/5 days of the week for all employees to use, medical expenses reimbursed 100%, training credits, and 4 week paid sabbatical after 7 years. Great opportunities for growth available in Account Management / Telecom Engineer. Managers do their best to guide you along with career growth.

    Cons

    Considerably low compensation, only certain departments offer growth and career advancement internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer higher compensation for those departments that do not offer career advancement. Match requirements to the actual compensation to keep it competitive and keep employees content.

    Disengaged Management and Low Employee Morale

    Former Employee - Prefer Not to Say  in  Fife, WA

    Pros

    Jobs are frequently available due to the high turnover rate. Can be a good company for an entry level telecommunication or IT person to get a start.

    Cons

    Continuant has a very high turnover rate. Low pay, disengaged management and a very low morale among employees is typical. The owner calls the company a Christian company and there is a great deal of pressure to be a part of a particular religious culture. There are daily prayer emails, pastors brought in to provide 'counselling' and prayers offered as a part of any company meeting. There are growth opportunities available if one subscribes to the heavily conservation and right wing Christian culture. The atmosphere is repressive and employees are fearful for the jobs. There is very little respect for the individual employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace diversity.
