    Cons

    Work life balance not so good. Locations, in MI and Illinois, not favorable to youngsters, since no happening life. Low on Salary

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Continental full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexibility: lots of work, different types of work and all kinds of work arrangements. Mobility: lots of opportunity to move up or sideways. Clarity: the vision for the company as a whole is always laid out clearly and everyone knows where to go next.

    Cons

    Middle management in Singapore do not know what they are doing, accepting ALL kinds of work from upper management but all they do is kicking them down to the developers. Spend the majority of time asking developers to do excel, and pilot projects that serve no purpose, sometimes those pilot projects contradict or overlap each other. Middle management also spend the rest of their time infighting.
