    Pros

    I love working at Continental in México. It has plenty of opportunities to grow. People are very helpful.

    Cons

    We depend too much on decisions being made from other Countries. We are not as autonomous as I would like to be for our decision making process.

    Pros

    HSA and Healthcare plan. 401K match. The engineers, finance, accounting, and other support groups are some of the most dedicated people I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Monthly Pay Periods like Europe.

    Almost every decision has to go through Germany and get their approval.

    High quality US based open positions getting filled by foreigners instead of Americans. For example engineering positions in Deer Park being filled by Mexican nationals and Continental (a German entity) is obtaining permanent work visas for foreign nationals.

    Too many mid level managers from Germany who have no direct reports but delay projects constantly to give the appearance they're contributing to the company.

    No remote work from home or flex schedules allowed. Upper management frowns on this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The German way does not work in the US work environment. It is insane that every project has to be approved by management in Germany. Let the US based management workers make decisions. Germany should set the guidelines not micro manage every decision.
    Stop relocating foreign workers to the US to take good paying American based engineering jobs.
