DNV GL was the best company I have ever worked for.
Surveyor (Former Employee) –  Katy, TX15 September 2016
Working for DNV GL was an experience of a lifetime. The work/life balance was absolutely amazing. And the opportunities provided by the company were amazing. There was a lot of room for growth. The company encouraged all of their employees towards individual growth. The management treated you like an adult, with minimal interference, while maintaining a supportive role in everyday activities.

What I shall say
Quality Assurance Manager (Former Employee) –  Dubai10 December 2016
It is not useful so leave it as it is.

You can never judge a company after you have left it.

The simple problem when I was there was that we were in the middle east and there was no rules to support us.

Good intentions - poor on execution
engineer (Former Employee) –  California25 April 2016
Worked in the renewables independent engineering group, exciting work, however the company planned a merger very poorly and suffered with a poor accounting system, and horribly understaffed and burned everyone out. Would have been nice if management could have executed their vision much better.
Pros
exciting work, global reach
Cons
bureaucratic organization, very demanding clients, bubble in the solar industry
