    I have been working at Continental full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - 4 Core Values (esp Freedom to Act and Trust) are instilled in the culture from top to bottom
    - Competitive in the Silicon Valley
    -Manager has trust in the work that I do
    -Great work life balance
    -On boarding process was simple and efficient
    -Everyone I work with is very friendly and will go out of their way to help me

    Cons

    - Large corporation, so you do notice certain rules and regulations you must follow
    - Sometimes I feel that I am a small fish in a large pond

    Advice to Management

    Keep trusting your employees. The moment either the employee or manager feels a lack of trust, things can go downhill.

    Be open to change.
