    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, what Continental believe is ‘Silicon Valley‘ takes precedence over building and employee safety and security. It’s also a shockingly thin veneer to the dysfunction lurking beneath. Management are impotent, but it is the structure they find themselves in that’s at fault more than anything. The layers of German bureaucracy to get simple things done, on top of the location not being an HQ renders employees useless. There was clearly no thought that putting a location in San Jose, operations would have to be entirely different. There is an environment of mistrust and the rot has set in.

    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.
