    This Nationally-Recognized Testing Laboratory is a high pressure place to learn fast and work hard.

    Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsYou will learn testing methods, analytical thinking, and the hustle to succeed in a testing lab. You will learn a variety of equipment within your test specialty. Other test labs value employees of this company.

    ConsFrequent turnover prevents group cohesion. Pressure is high. Salary increases are not strongly connected to performance. Improvisation of test setups is likely.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA stable command structure, stable team structure, and regimented training of new hires, would promote team spirit and overall team skill.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Feels like you work for a small company, but Intertek is huge. Lots of hands on learning.

    Business Development Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsLots of learning, various characters, diverse locations

    ConsNot glamorous, offices often in awful areas of the cities or countries they operate, people are hit or miss... some "go getters" and "rainmakers", others just here for the job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet better at recognizing talent, and upward mobility.

    Great company & people - fast culture provides opportunity & challenges

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIntertek overall is a terrific company with great people. Working out of the U.S., I don't have interaction with headquarters in the U.K. This independence (which is the norm) provides a great deal of opportunity, as does a leadership structure which is constantly evolving. This is a good company for self-starters and those who want to impact change, given the opportunities and the very fast pace.

    ConsThe flipside of decentralized leadership is that communication is often a challenge, including within the U.S. and its multiple divisions, as well as between different divisions and functions. This company is probably not a good fit for those uncomfortable with ambiguity and consistently evolving structure, and is certainly not a good fit for those looking for a slow pace.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to explore the right balance between decentralization and structured communication. Continue to survey employees and act based on the results in an ongoing fashion.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    So far, so good!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Arlington Heights, IL

    ProsA proven and respected leader in the industry of consumer products testing. The benefits are generous, especially the tuitiion reimbursement program and the initial 4 week PTO allowance.

    ConsMany processes are in need of improvement to increase efficiency and decrease turnover time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management, continue with the open communication and being involved/visible with all facets of the facility. Your presence and the ability to come speak with you directly is appreciated.

    Intertek Testing as a career

    District Sales Manager (Current Employee)
    Fairfield, NJ

    ProsEveryday is different and challenging . This is a job that makes you think on your feet everyday and adjust . The daily grind is out the door because everyday is different

    ConsThe daily challenges of making things work for the client in an ever changing enviroment can be taxing . The fact that everyday is different can be daunting to some.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDeeper training for all new hires would be helpful to all parties . In a customer driven business some of the technologies could more user friendly for the client .
