Lab Technician (Current Employee) –  Bukit BatokMarch 23, 2016
Learnt a lot on multi tasking and working together as a team to ensure that our team did the very best and hit the target on time though the workloads are indescribable. I learnt that working as a team is the key to every success. Good team makes it a fun place to work despite the stress we encounter everyday. Not to forget, keeping the workplace clean and tidy makes it more easier to work. Thats where the 5S and housekeeping needed to be apply.
Pros
allowances

Energy Services Inspector (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 1, 2016
I worked at Bureau Veritas for a year. Inspectors with experience are in high demand and stay extremely busy. Sometimes overwhelming demands on inspectors. The pay is low for the work required and the management seems to be a bit out of touch with reality.
Pros
Great Benefits.
Cons
Poor Management. Low Pay

One of the worst places I have worked at
Admin (Former Employee) –  BVNAFebruary 25, 2016
When I took the job I didn't know much about BVNA had I known I would of never taken the job. Currently working on my way out of BVNA but once gone I will gladly give more details. Management expects you to work more then 8 hours but no overtime. Management also is not open and will stab you in the back any chance they get. They will not promote from within instead hire new people with no experience and put them above you. Pay is below average and benefits are average at best. Lots of turnover as people see once they get their its not a good company. Stay away
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Poor management with no vision

Not recommended
Consultant/Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 7, 2016
Like every company, there are a few bad eggs. Senior management is old school. Company frowns upon anyone working less than 8 hours per day. Common to see people working 14 hour days and still feeling the pressure.
Pros
N/a
Cons
Houston office located in Greenspoint area

lab analyst (Current Employee) –  Centurion, GPJanuary 25, 2016
the hardest part is making the that everything you do is accurate because we cannot afford to repeat the samples

the company as a whole is great but i think they can improve on the promotion structures.

the management do not care a lot about the workers who are performing well, they do not recognize that they are working hard and that is something that is needed in order to gain confidence adn to continue performing well
Pros
year end fucntion
Cons
no promotions

Microbiology lab- Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYDecember 27, 2015
no future, lots work compare to the money you get paid, very poor management, lots of competition with very inexperienced people, and most importantly you dont worth anything to the company, no matter how hard you work they dont appreciate your job.
