I have been working at Continental Airlines

Pros

Dignity and respect are valued. Feel included and cared about. Free flights, of course, make it an attractive place to work.

Cons

Airlines are historically low paying employers. Near everyone could find a much better paying job easily - yet, the culture keeps you here!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As the merger approaches, take care to integrate the Continental culture with United. Listen to employees and value their feedback.

    Very satisfied, but the merger with United is causing headhaches.

    I have been working at Continental Airlines

    Pros

    medical insurance, travel benefits, fair compensation, flexibility to balance lifestyle with work duties. Also, flexibility to when to take vacations and days off.

    Cons

    No promotions. No annual profit sharing because the company generally losses money. Difficult to get insight from the annual evaluation process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs direction. Since the merger with United, Continental employees feel the upper management do not want to share information about future developments in the company. Also, the CEO, when faced tough questions, does not have convincing answers.

    The snow dog pulls the sled almost to the peak of mount Everest; stops to take a drink of water, "Get me a new dog!"

    I worked at Continental Airlines

    Pros

    Free flights and descent medical benifits.

    Cons

    There will always be uncertainty as to whether your job will be around in a couple of years, and you will never be assured of any type of pension. Tthe companys pension account, is more than likely to become the company’s “Just in case” account.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gordon Bathone made this company, and promoted "dignity and respect", but this motto should now be "If we save $0.0001 on this we can buy that" Just as the video you once displayed to all of your hard working employees....."The Plan Is Working!", and indeed it is.

    No opinion of CEO
