    Pros

    The network is the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Easily the most unpleasant people in one place I've ever experienced, both in number and in rancor. Pedigree is rewarded, rather than quality, thoughtful, innovative work. No simple task is left alone without some overly complex model to replace it that ultimately doesn't work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire nice people; forget the MBAs. You'll save money and actually accomplish something.

    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 Management

    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.
