No opinion of CEO

I have been working at DET Norske Veritas full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The work-life balance is excellent: permanent employees get 6 weeks holidays.
There is a culture of thrust where you are to a large extent responsible for your own work.
It is fairly easy to move within the company.

Cons

The salaries are good, but not close to the highest in the market segment.
Management strategies are beneficial for business, sometimes at the expense of hindring the development of technical competence.

Advice to Management

The fact that the classification/certification work is not technically challenging is driving away talented engineers. A mixture with more technically oriented tasks is highly desirable.

    Pros

    People have integrity, good community, opportunity to progess if you are willing to 'have a go', better efforts in recent years at employee engagement

    Cons

    Bit of a ceiling in some units, lots of senior management on Final Salary scheme, most managers are technies promoted to the role and not great at the organisation side, formal training until recently very limited - all learning generally on the job

    Advice to Management

    Very few of the managers are actual 'leaders' who motivate the team and are interested in passing on and sharing their knowledge
