      Pros

      Work-life balance is good. With the three days on two days off, two days on three days off, get to have two weekends off every month and could also plan for whatever appointment needed to take care of during the week too. The company provides uniforms and safety shoes, which is nice.

      Cons

      Our plant is one that will be shutting its door in 2024.

      Loyal engineers tend to earn less than newly hired engineers.

      Pros

      - 401K match 6% - HSA

      Cons

      - Loyal engineers tend to earn less than newly hired engineers. - Yearly salary increase even does not cover inflation. In fact, taking into consideration inflation, my salary is even lower than it was 4 years ago. NOT FAIR AT ALL. - After 12 years of engineering experience and 6+ years at Conti, my salary is still in 20th percentile (Entry Level Engineer salary) - no respect and awards for getting new skills and experience - old office facilities

      Pros

      Decent 401k match of 6% right from day 1, no vesting period Alright PTO compensation at 17 days as starting employee, with option to purchase up to 10 days Internal process to learn design guidelines was good Decent co-workers within BU both locally and abroad

      Cons

      Engineering jobs being moved from US to Mexico and Germany to Romania to reduce costs Lots of meetings making it hard to get work done Watched many star employees leave after being overworked into the ground Managers have poor communication with project teams and how many resources they need Project teams never staffed enough Requests for more resources to meet project timing always responded with it's not in the budget American and German management communication is poor and not well aligned Work life balance is spotty No additional PTO until 8 years of employment Meetings with China outside of working hours at times like 5am and 10pm Not sure what point the company goals serve, you're disposable like at any other American company
