I worked at Continental full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

As German company, almost all rolls and positions are well structured, main duties and responsabilities are defined, what makes easy jobs to perform, and more useful in the complexity of the automotive enviroment who has suffered many hit in the last crisis. The company is excellent option for entrance experience, and at leat you want to spend the rest of you professional life, get up in the organizational ladder takes a lot of time and effor, focused in old school experience where young people are used for the most dinamic and hard work, and managment and strategical for the old experienced team, makes sense, but for ones who want to scalate fast, is a brake that need a lot of patience.

Cons

Overall very good company, and the enviroment is friendly, I highly recomend work in Continental, and more if you are in entrance levels, you will learn a lot of all the team, due to have much exposure and trainings

Advice to ManagementAdvice

re-start programs such international cross training who will develop interior talent and will keeping in the top notch of knowlodge , transfering from management senior teams to the new one talent entrance.

    Pros

    True MNC, with Continental AG effectively communicating its Vision & interest. It has invested a good money to setup a global R&D hub for supporting SW development projects for OEMs & a manufacturing plant to cater local OEM with components. One of the leading Tier 1 suppliers in India & a tough competitor to Bosch, Delphi & Denso

    My rating 3 (Neutral), is only w.r.t corporate values & policies... But local...

    Cons

    Continental has a history of acquisitions & mergers (Teves, Temic, Motorola, Siemens VDO etc.). Hence, processes are not adapted to make it unified. Manufacturing plant processes (mainly suited for production) are far for compliance to SW Services unit. Support processes like HR, Admin, Purchase, IT, Logistics etc. are very primitive & uncontrolled.

    There is no Open Door policy (at least in India) as claimed by the Global Leaders. Huge Corporate Cartels manage administration. Voices for any conflicts to code of conduct, corruption, non-compliance of processes, and w.r.t protection of intellectual property will be suppressed.

    SW services division is getting worse w.r.t culture from past 1 year as there was a complete re-organization... Change for getting worse... TRUST is absolutely missing between employees & management

    In one phrase, "Systems are susceptible for personnel change". Ideally Systems should be independent of people change. However, this is far from reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be employee friendly. Reduce Corruption / selfish motives. Set Examples & follow process. Accept shortfalls & have contingency & corrective actions. Before all, prevention... Think from risk based approach. Reduce cultivation of cartels. Reduce Hypocrisy. At least, don't get caught upon being naive. Be transparent with Global Management as they are the stakeholders.
