Pros

Dynamic environment where no 2 days are the same as we constantly react to external factors, whether economic, competitive, natural, or political.
Working with like-minded individuals who have a passion for travel and know what it takes to provide true customer service.
Travel benefits!

Cons

Still working through the merger, which is a great learning experience, but can get frustrating at times.

    Culture of dignity and respect, open and honest communication. Is any current employee not laughing?

    Pros

    Decent pay and vacation. Most other benefits such as pension have been lost.

    Cons

    Since the merger, Continental has replaced most management with their people. Since then we have had every process go their way right or wrong. Absolutely no communication. The new culture is one of "I don't want to hear it". Very intimidating command and control environment. Little by little our maintenance jobs are moving to Houston and Chicago. They are reducing numbers in CA by making life miserable for the employees who have served the company for decades. This is culturally ill company that is just asking for trouble by choosing lax quality controls and standards. Being at work is less cheerful than a morgue. I personally do not know 1 person who enjoys their job. This situation here is very similar to what Continental did to Eastern. Unfortunately Continental is still the same rotten employer it was back then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have tried on many occasions. The standard phrase there is 'because that's the way we've always done it". They will not listen to employee suggestions. I guess the undereducated low level management has it all figured out. We'll see.
