Pros

The best thing about Continental AIrlines are the flight benefits and profit sharing.

Cons

My direct managers are out-of-touch with its employees because they demand respect, yet they are unwilling to give it.

Advice to Management

The merger of Continental Airlines and United provides a unique opportunity to get it right, I can only hope it will happen!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    medical insurance, travel benefits, fair compensation, flexibility to balance lifestyle with work duties. Also, flexibility to when to take vacations and days off.

    Cons

    No promotions. No annual profit sharing because the company generally losses money. Difficult to get insight from the annual evaluation process.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs direction. Since the merger with United, Continental employees feel the upper management do not want to share information about future developments in the company. Also, the CEO, when faced tough questions, does not have convincing answers.

    Pros

    Free flights and descent medical benifits.

    Cons

    There will always be uncertainty as to whether your job will be around in a couple of years, and you will never be assured of any type of pension. Tthe companys pension account, is more than likely to become the company’s “Just in case” account.

    Advice to Management

    Gordon Bathone made this company, and promoted "dignity and respect", but this motto should now be "If we save $0.0001 on this we can buy that" Just as the video you once displayed to all of your hard working employees....."The Plan Is Working!", and indeed it is.
