    Pros

    OK work atmosphere, ability to flex your time to fit your schedule within reason. Decent pay

    Cons

    many two faced people. Lazy workers on the union floor. Lazy workers in the labs. Constant bickering about someone else and not enough attention to one's own work flow. little to no advancement opps. especially for contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Put a foot down and get rid of the lazy workers and those who prefer to stay on their phones, or using company computers to write in their blogs or other "personal work" that is unrelated to the job at hand. Do better at implementing the proper software and work changes to make things more efficent and rid the company of those who wish not to comply.

    I have been working at Continental (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are hard working and driven with good work ethic and values. Company strives for its core values. Benefits and pay are good.

    Cons

    Management, especially upper management is not responsive or too busy to get involved. Some act holier than thou or not down to earth. Poor communication runs rampant. No micro management- responsible for yourself and your quality of work. Can strive for better work life balance. Is too serious at times and can afford to put more effort towards creating a lighter atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Find upper management who really care about the employee's career development and give feedback to assist in that development. More training. Learn how to properly communicate with your teams.

    Pros

    work is daily and consistant. they leave the doors open in winter so the toxic chemicals will blow in to the community.

    Cons

    management is clueless, and not people oriented only numbers count. People have zero value to this company. Praise is non-existant, raises are less than half of inflation. people regularly get hit by the forklift drivers. Upper safety management just laughed. Stating, " I hope that doesn't happen again.

    Advice to Management

    read something about the future, or you will not be a part of one

    Pros

    Job is ok. Has good benefits. Is Local to my needs. Staff some what friendly.

    Cons

    Longer hours then I'd like. Mangers only care about the bottom line. They have no problem blaming others. Main reason for this is they are always training new employees. HR doesn't do much once your hired!
    Travel accomdations are really bad. Should be equal to our wages. Holiday inns are not up to my standards!!

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced people!! Stop blaming others for your hiring mistakes! Be more willing to help others. Then your employees may stay longer.

    Pros

    The best reason is the money and the shares that we get every 3 months.

    Cons

    Does not have any compassion for there employees and the fact that we have a life outside of this place. Newer employees have no retirement benefits unless you have a 401k.

    Advice to Management

    You should really care about your employees more as far as the family life goes. The fact that you changed out attendance policy and made it more strict is not a fair or exceptional to anyone. The fact that most people have to work 6 days a week and not get there days off isn't fair we do have a life outside this place and you even tell new employees that there old life is gone once they are hired that you might as well make new friends here. How cruel is that.
