I worked at Continental full-time (More than 3 years)
At the corporate level, this company truly embodies what a large successful company in this era should be. They embrace change and strive to evolve. Great benefits, work incentives, combined with an aggressive growth strategy.
At the plant level, some key employees (CG12 and up) are new to their role in the newer locations. They are genuinely good and intelligent people, but have limited or no experience coming into key roles. When everyone is new and coming from many different locations, it makes for a diverse yet extremely challenging environment where everyone seems to know the "best way" of running a process. This issue is best addressed during the planning phase, not by the new plant management once established.
Advice to Management
Ensure the experienced talent pipeline can support the aggressive growth strategy when starting new plants. If not, ensure dedicated mentors (both local and remote) are in place for key personnel (CG12 and higher) who will be new in their role within the new facilities as they are built.
I applied online. I interviewed at Continental (Chicago, IL).
the hiring process seemed to take a long time. I can only imagine that many candidates were being interviewed which led to this result. I did get hired so I suppose it paid off.
Today, we signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Baidu, one of the biggest Internet companies in China, and NIO, a global electric vehicle startup, in Berlin, Germany. Click here http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQEuC and here http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQEuX for all the details.
