    Not a long term career option.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood vacation time. You can develop skills in certain areas such as product safety, emc, testing, etc.

    ConsTUV seems to fire people or lay them off when they start making too much money or get too old. Note that too much money by their standards isn't really very much money either. The salaries at TUV are low compared to other salaries in the Bay Area and Southern California. For example, an EMC engineer at a manufacturer is going to make a lot more than an EMC engineer at TUV. You could put in 10 years at TUV as an Engineer in the Bay Area and be still be making less than 100k.
    Management at TUV changes all the time. When I was there, they brought in several sales and operations 'experts' only to lay off said experts within a few months.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake more money by getting more clients, not by keeping salaries low. Give employees a reason to stay for more than a few years. Your competitors down the road offer stock options and bonuses.

    Too Top Heavy

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat vacation time because of the European parent company.

    ConsManagement is extramly incopmetent. One exampel is the ANNUAL 4th quarter development freeze. If managament did their job Q1-Q3 this would not be an annual event.

    Uppermanagamet wastes an insane amount of money Q1-Q3 from $1k dinners to strip clubs to company cars for thise who do nothing to develop the business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop elmianting postions that actually deal with customers and look at the very top. Its so obvious that it kills copany moral.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    TUV Rheinland opened up the world to me.

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    Rochester, NY

    ProsEffort = Reward. Every Challenge offers the possiblity of commensurate reward.

    ConsSometimes it seems that no matter how much profit you can generate, it may simply be not enough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and use that energy to grow grow grow.

    Keep it moving

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Newtown, CT

    Pros- good benefits package
    - tons of vacation time because of european parent company
    - diverse group of employees work there

    Cons- senior management completey incompetent
    - unless you are german, you cannot advance
    - absolutely no loyalty
    - arcaine rules are implemented for all staff .. and then completely ignored by sr management hours after being posted

    Advice to Senior Managementperhaps you should take more time praising and rewarding good employees. not being yelled at for work on a project shouldnt be the goal, but it is there. The good people leave for a reason, and then you are left with the b-squad to run things. and you wonder why you have to fight for numbers monthly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    BAD WORK CULTURE CORPORATE CULTURE MISSING BAD MOUTHED MISBEHAVED MANAGER

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsNO GOOD REASON TO WORK HERE

    ConsIt is a highly misbehaved organisation especially the mumbai branch never had such a terrible experience
    HR and Management will just record and preserve all the complaints and will probably make it a Bible of TUV Rheinland

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop all the nonsense with the employees or dont offer jobs to people who come and regret later on

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
