    I worked at Continental full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free food, nice but poorly managed and maintained building

    Cons

    This orphan child of the Continental family is an apparent experiment, along the lines of a botched lobotomy. Someone in Hanover, or Detroit should take a long hard look at the rotation of employees in this location, and count how many people since its inception, particularly women, have left. A revolving door in the front entrance would be a useful addition at this stage. The pretty building, free snacks and food,...

    Advice to Management

    Stop, look, see what is really going on. Hire a local professional HR and Operations team. Customize processes and polices to suit the local environment, the old German regime does not work here. Give your managers real authority to act and make real time decisions.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Continental full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities within the organization. Able to move in different directions, as well as throughout different divisions for great career opportunities. Overall, a great place to experience any side of automotive engineering development. Plenty of support for leadership development if upward is the choice you want to follow as well.

    Cons

    Large company, but for the reasons given in the Pros, this is not always a Con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus on developing employees! It is a wonderful environment.

    I have been working at Continental full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay is not bad. The benefits are good, especially the time off. Health insurance is good, but declining at this point (2014-2015). 6% match on 401k. Wonderful, if you enjoy politics.

    Cons

    Very paternalistic. All significant decisions come from Germany. Very political - if you fall out of favor, you are pretty much done. SILOS, SILOS, SILOS.

    Advice to Management

    Really engage the employees, rather than all the signs, slogans, and pictures that are printed and slapped up telling us to be engaged. Also, do what you can to break down the silos that keep the groups (by country, by function, by business, etc.) separated. We aren't scary. If we were allowed to work together, it will help the company, not hurt it.
