Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Continental Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great company that should have given its employees a better retirement plan and protection for their seniority benefits. Medical insurance and 401K plans are good.

Cons

No guarantee that you still have a job the next day. They can always just tell you that you are no longer needed.

Advice to Management

Keep politics away from this job.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Travel benefits, nice and friendly colleagues, very laid back place but the culture depends heavily on individual divisions. social activities from time to time.

    Cons

    slow career progression, hard to stand out from peers due to the large number of employees, somehow hard landing before the merger

    Advice to Management

    give more opportunity to baseline employees, help employees to transit better in face of the merger, raise the compensation level


  2. "if you have motivation and drive, this company has opportunity for all."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    very well-rounded company. medical, 401k, annual raises, perfect attendance recognition, the best flexibility in the industry, most important: employees like working with each other.

    Cons

    the way our merger happened was unnecessary. continental, if possible, should have taken over united. this merger was messy, rushed and not enough research on cost-effective staffing was accomplished. continental employees will rise above and survive.

    Advice to Management

    try to keep continental values and work ethics through these tough and uncertain times of a merger.
