Pros

The benefits were great at Continental Airlines. We got to see a lot of the world.

Cons

Advancement is based on who you know, not what you know. The merger will dampen it even further.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't lose the original Continental Airlines company culture.

    I worked at Continental Airlines

    Pros

    -Work-Life balance was incredible. Time off is very flexible, whenever needed. The first manager I had would let us go early sometimes for happy hour! (too bad things didnt' stay that way)
    -Travel benefits are unmatched.
    -Lot of good people to work with (depending on group)

    Cons

    -Salary was mediocre compared to industry average. Lot of "new hires" fresh out of college.
    -Difficult to move up the ladder.
    -A lot depends on the group you are in. My first team was incredible, I loved it. Then they had cutbacks and I moved into a group that was horrible. Can be "clickish".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't get caught up in the corporate madness. Remember your employees are what run your company.

    I have been working at Continental Airlines

    Pros

    The people are terrific and when mananger is lacking others step up to the plate to assist you in doing an excellent job for your co-workers and customers. The opportunity to work for an organization that expects you to work with the same dignity and respect we all should have learned as a child and a must in the house.

    Cons

    The workload is extremely heavy do to continuous cut-backs. Doing the work of 2-3 people without additional compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust is a two way street.
