    Advice to Management

    Keep trusting your employees. The moment either the employee or manager feels a lack of trust, things can go downhill.

    Be open to change.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Pay is good (could always be better). Good community if you're into that stuff. Take great steps towards environmental protection. Upper management is mostly nice and easy to deal with.

    Cons

    They would rather hire from outside than to promote from within so don't plan on going anywhere. Communication between departments is non-existent. Management needs to be restructured.

    Advice to Management

    Do better.
