I have been working at Continental Airlines

Pros

Good benefits (pension + 401K match), Decent Salary, Nice Co-Workers, Decent Medical benefits, and a pretty good pay scale compared to the industry as a whole

Cons

Sometimes management seems to play favorites and promote people without actively posting that a job is available; workload can be kind of high depending upon the day/weather/etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you merger your company, don't give the company you're merging with every single thing they ask for if you're going to be the person who is in charge of the company once the merger is complete.

    I have been working at Continental Airlines

    Pros

    Benefits--medical and flight are both excellent
    Management treats us with respect
    Great close knit culture
    Laid back and casual
    Empowered to solve problems on the spot

    Cons

    Moral is going way down along with our customer service ratings since the merger. Not sure if we are keeping the Continental Culture. I was impressed with how quickly we recovered from Irene. We got back to normal in days not weeks. I worry that United management is not customer focused and that the only goal now will be profit. Clearly they undoing a lot of great things that Gordon Bethune did for the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you can blend the operational side of United with the Customer Service side of Continental then this truly will be a great airline.
