    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Work-Life balance was incredible. Time off is very flexible, whenever needed. The first manager I had would let us go early sometimes for happy hour! (too bad things didnt' stay that way)
    -Travel benefits are unmatched.
    -Lot of good people to work with (depending on group)

    Cons

    -Salary was mediocre compared to industry average. Lot of "new hires" fresh out of college.
    -Difficult to move up the ladder.
    -A lot depends on the group you are in. My first team was incredible, I loved it. Then they had cutbacks and I moved into a group that was horrible. Can be "clickish".

    Advice to Management

    Don't get caught up in the corporate madness. Remember your employees are what run your company.

    Pros

    The benefits were great at Continental Airlines. We got to see a lot of the world.

    Cons

    Advancement is based on who you know, not what you know. The merger will dampen it even further.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the original Continental Airlines company culture.
