    I have been working at TÜV SÜD America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Chicago branch enjoys one of the best operations managers in the business. Plenty of room for professional development and great corporate support.

    Cons

    5 years in, I've yet to find one. If you're hungry and a team player, you'll do very well.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the past 5 years.....look forward to many more.

    I worked at TÜV SÜD America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location was conveniently located off the highway. Some of the employees were pleasant, although they were usually not of higher ranks (supervisor or above) however in passing everyone generally said hello. The operating systems were fairly easy to use. Employees who were there over 5 years were helpful in explaining the technical difficulties that were common, which would be difficult to move past without their help.

    Cons

    Communication was a very clear problem since day one and this created an uncomfortable work environment. Most employees are overworked leaving no time to learn new things. Taking time off was difficult as there was no one to help fill your spot while you were out. Supervisors were not very supportive, and only cared about what affected them personally and making themselves look good to the higher ups. There was no room to grow.

    Also, the building was in desperate need of improving... poor air quality solutions, old carpeting, air temperature varied throughout the open space layout, bathrooms were gross- just to name a few. Also the health benefits were arranged as self pay company sponsored which meant tons of time spent trying to fix billing errors and the eligibility verifications were endless at each doctor appointment.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate clearly and professionally to all employees. Learn the facts as they pertain to each entity so that the proper training can be supplied. Individuals should be treated with the same respect you would want to be treated with.

    Pros

    A huge company with vast resources to make sure all the tools required are available to be successful. Excellent facilities with state of the art equipment.

    Cons

    Centralized management scheme with different layers located in various locations throughout United States. Too much dependence on phone conferencing without any face to face interaction.

    Advice to Management

    More interaction with local management and onsite visits to actually see what is going on at a location.

    Pros

    Good exposure in terms of visibility with senior management. I learnt concepts of project management and leadership that was very helpful. I could apply my course learning in the projects. The support of the team helped me clear the PHR exam. Good activities for employee engagement like Halloween, Friday Bagels and more.

    Cons

    As an intern I was not able to participate in all activities of HR due to confidentiality issues. But, the HR team did a good job giving an overview of the problem and the appropriate solution.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! The company needs more systems in place to help the HR team perform better. Good work culture and team morale.
