    I worked at Testo part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working at Testo provided me with valuable skills and experience as I was exposed to a challenging environment that demanded a high level of multi-tasking, attention to detail and excellent customer service. Making use of the team members in various departments of the company, I have learned how to communicate and seek appropriate help whenever needed. My role was nevertheless focussed primarily on the technical side of the business, which was the calibration of scientific instruments, and hence, I have developed my ability to grasp new concepts quickly as well as honing my problem-solving skills. Moreover, at Testo, I was able to build on my technical writing and customer relations skills which later transpired in my other jobs.

    Cons

    Personally, Testo was a perfect part-time job as I was studying and finishing my degree, however, due to its remote location, the daily commute could be regarded as lengthy. Additionally, the team is a close-knit one and therefore can be challenging to adapt at first, but this also provides ground for building on communication skills and team relationships.

    I have been working at Testo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Once a year you get free candy or 1 rafaello

    Cons

    Unbelieveble limitations: you are not allowed to touch your mobile phone let alone making phone calls. Managers go nuts if you do so. You must wear smart casual, even if you work in engineering. You are not allowed to listen to music, watch anything but testo website on pc, eat snacks, leave workplace on time, you have to leave at least 10mins later, and many more. If you are not desperate for money do not waste your time and nerves coming and working for these people.

    I have been working at Testo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent salary and some colleagues.

    Cons

    Portfolio of products too deep. Marketing led, chasing your tail and answering to Germany for KPI's puts you under too much pressure to really do the job properly.
