    team lead

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosnever a dull moment because there is always something to do
    fast paced
    benefits
    flexibility (if you are good at what you do which comes after a couple years if you last)
    meet many different people and clients and how to deal with upset clients

    Conscompany is going no-where fast
    only way to move up is to wait until people quit ahead of you (which always happens)
    company lacks engineering experience and does nothing to retain those key individuals
    senior and upper management only care about the numbers with little care for employees at the bottom
    its a 30,000 employee company that feels like a start-up
    you are treated like an orange making orange juice and once you have given up all your juice you feel empty and thats when people start to look for more jobs

    Worked there for about half a year, it was ok.

    Tester (Former Employee)
    Blue Bell, PA

    Pros-relaxed dress code
    -people are diverse
    -stress free work, you can do as much or as little as you want

    Cons-no advancement
    -they tend to keep the work horses and fire the people doing a ok amount
    -extremly high turn over rate, by the end of my 4 month period half my coworkers were gone.

    Advice to Senior Management-none. high turnover and low pay is the name of the game in this industry. learn who your loyal workers are and who the mercenaries are.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ok starting Job due to pay

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Arlington Heights, IL

    ProsLaid back environment, with no one to measure metrics. This allows anyone who works there to act busy and get paid. 4 Weeks paid time off was pretty nice as well.

    ConsTerrible leadership, High school Drama. There are a few internal teams and none of them know how to communicate with each other. If the company had good communication it would be a much better place to work for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to your employees and stop showing favoritism.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The environment of Intertek

    Project Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people to work with. Team atmosphere.

    ConsToo concerned with putting things in the correct boxes. Not all projects meet the typical definition which leads to missing deadlines.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople are scared for their positions and you need to listen to their needs and try to work towards relieving the stress of the day to day insanity. Need to balance the work/home life.
