    I worked at Continental full-time

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people I have worked with. Company does a good job of involving employees in teams to review/problem solve issues. US telecommuting and vacation purchase benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Need to be young, German and male for development opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize people for the work they do. There is a tendency to give more work to those who can accomplish tasks without recognition until the individual is overloaded.

    I have been working at Continental full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was better when it was Siemens

    Cons

    Management cares more about making parts than caring about workers. It'a a blue collar vs white collar mentality. New employed workers are underpaid. And the people there are pretty depressed. No one seems excited about their job. Some workers and salary people are pretty racist and prejudice too.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting those only you like. Give a fair chance.
