    Pros

    Benefits are okay, work-life balance is reasonable and it is interesting to work with the various laboratories with their advanced equipments. Not to mention that are are various training opportunities for staffs to improve in both technical skills and personal skills

    Cons

    Cost-cutting issues to the extent we have some limited equipment usage that we need to use frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do consider more for the laboratories that needs to use certain equipments frequently in order to cut costs on having us to send the samples to external parties to test for us instead.

    Pros

    1.) OT can be arranged, flexi timing and also a good place to do part time studies including retiring.

    2.) Lots of courses for you to join and upgrade yourself.

    Cons

    1.) The management throws the customer problem at you and is either you can solve the impossible demands or die on the spot.

    2.) If you are looking at promotion, it will take u a long time as such even though you have a diploma or degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looks for more business opportunities and be the first company to emphasize minimum wage, for employees job rank 1-6.

    Pros

    Work pace can be moderately fast at times but generally there is understanding for retirees.
    Degree holders will be groomed.

    If you are young and energetic(perceived), then be prepared that your workload will keep increasing.

    Management are doing their jobs although in a slow pace that is not keeping up with the general pace outside.

    Pros

    Expertise and will gain very invaluable insight to the QC aspects. Reputable company with good standing ground.

    Cons

    Nothing much actually. Perhaps in terms of top-down communication has to be reinforced. Overall the company is fine and well managed by the top management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open for opportunities

    Pros

    Many people there work for several years: there is a sense of job security. The culture of the company is that of a large family. The atmosphere is generally convivial. The impression I had was that the company sticks up for its employees, although there may be internal frictions. Good opportunities for internal training.

    Cons

    The career path and scope for growth is not always clear. In the auditing/certification department, performance is mainly evaluated based on audits completed and contract value of the audit - both of which you may not have much control over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide clearer career path for employees.

    Pros

    Big company, easy access to MRT. Better to manage than to do technical work.

    Cons

    Dissatisfied staff especially among the older workers. No recognition or chance of promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR department not doing a good job. Interns supposed to be interviewed but gets in without. Gives company a image where its very easy to get in. Management always pressuring the people below them. Lower ranking staff usually can get a maximum grade of B because if they get any higher than that the company must promote them. In addition, there is a cap of number of A's to be given, therefore managers want the A grade for themselves. Company rather hire an outsider to be a manager than promote the internal ranks. Causes dissatisfaction. Furthermore, learning curve in TUV SUD is steep and the new staff should not be doing a management role immediately after joining. Nature of job requires product knowledge gained through experience.

    Pros

    TUV SUD PSB provides a challenging and flexible jobscope that maximize the individual's ability in their field of expertise and provide a platform that promote all rounded development; TUV SUD PSB also, as part of the individual development program, provide sponsored courses and structured training programs to enhance soft skills as well as technical competence.

    Cons

    Barriers posed by workplace diversity (especially that pertaining to cultural aspect) was not well addressed causing likelihood of potential conflicts that's avoidable; and multilayer echelons within organization sometimes posed as a barrier to channel urgent problems to effect immediate necessary attention at the operational level ultimately affecting attitude of primarily blue collar workers, and having ramifications in efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a platform to close the gap in hierarchy for example "meet-the-people sessions" to look into the issues faced at the operational level.
