    I worked at Continental

    Pros

    Though i worked here as a contractual job only for year, I am writing my honest reviews here 1. Excellent brand. Still has lot of potential to grow in India with respect to auto ancillary sales. If one looks at the way Bosch grown in India in last 20 years, these guys has the potential grow 2. Even though, I was a contractor, I had interacted with many GM's and few times with CFO. Not even once, they had given hint of their positions 3. Good Job Security. Never people talked about firing. If the year is not good, they don;t give increment and cut travels. but still fixed pay is protected. 4. Excellent work life balance. Though they start early at 7.30AM, you can logout by 4.45pm. After 5.30pm, Office will be nearly empty. 5. Provides decent food and employee transport (slightly subsidized)

    Cons

    1. Still running on old technologies. If you work here, then you cannot go back to other companies which has poor work life balance. This company is only for retirement.

    I worked at Continental for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work culture. Good place to work as a fresher.

    Cons

    Initial enthusiasm dies down very soon,thanks to the senior management people's attitude. Extremely biased nature of senior managers in employee appraisal,promotions & employee retention. Very weak HR policies especially at the Bangalore (Bommasandra) office.HR department is only interested in finishing off its recruitment duties,but not interested in employee welfare management. Work-Life balance is good only in certain (very few) departments.Not all departments follow a uniform Work-Life balance system.

    Good people, good team. Company have reasonably good benefits

    No work life balance if you are of the RED projects. Take a look time and multiple "gates" for next level while new hirers easily obtained the level upon their entry.
