    Intertek - I.T.

    Software Developer (Current Employee)

    ProsYou are not stuck working the same thing over and over. You get to work on different projects and try new things. The company will provide training that is needed and takes great care of the employees. Also have a big group that you can reach out.

    ConsSometimes you are thrown onto a project that you don't know anything about and they expect you to handle it like you've been working on it for a while. Not too bad, but does offer some challenges. Also, the timelines are sometimes too quick. You are expected to get 2 weeks of work done in 1 week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust know that work done is fast, cheap and has good quality: pick two. You cannot have all three.

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

    Great company to work for with an incredible outlook and growth opportunities!

    Project Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsCompany is quickly acquiring small to medium businesses which makes for a challenging environment, full of opportunities. Good ideas are always heard by management. Usually work on multiple projects at a time, thus keeping things interesting. Accomplishments reflect pay. Great work environment, co-workers are fun and motivated.

    ConsNot the type of place for someone without initiative. Training philosophy is more 'on-the-job learning' rather than formal classroom.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImplement more programs to promote interaction between Intertek branches.

    Given every opportunity to succeed

    Sustainability (Current Employee) Kentwood, MI

    ProsGreat for entrepreneurial minded people who are team oriented
    Great clients to work with
    Hard work and dedication is recognized and rewarded
    Above average pay and reward system

    ConsThere are negative people in every company, especially companies this large so navigate around them and succeed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to new forms of employee engagement opportunities and continue to coach employees to their passions. In such a large company our employee's dream job exists already within our structure.......make sure your helping your employees get there, in turn creating a pathway for more successful candidates. Positivity is cyclical

    Intertek

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Duluth, GA

    ProsGreat company that is changing the industry. As a FTSE 100 company. We have the power to move into any industry sector where we see growth opportunities and the people to make sure we are successful.

    ConsWhile the compensation is very good, Intertek has a habit of focusing on percent over quota without including weighting factors like total revenue or industry vertical as a points of recognition. Top sales people are not typically recognized by management to the organization or individual.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIntertek is very lean on management. There are only three levels between sales and the NA President. Some employees may seek more directions and feedback. Others strive and achieve great things within a culture of entrepreneurship and self-development.

    Great atmosphere

    Science (Former Employee) Manchester, England (UK)

    ProsThe team was great and everyone was really friendly and supportive. We were busy most of the time but I have never felt rushed or stressed, there was always a minute to have a quick chat with colleagues or have a laugh. The job was quite varied and if you were up for some challenges or trying out smth new, you could have a chance to do so. It was great that we could come and leave any time considering we do our 40 hours a week (but hours could also go over to future weeks).

    ConsThe salary wasn't high enough comparing to similar roles in other companies. There were no bonuses to motivate employees, there were no benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the salaries, Introduce benefits and bonuses for better motivation
