Stephen Southern

General Manager; Intertek Commodities, Indonesia & Papua New Guinea

"As a truly global company, Intertek offers managers unequalled opportunities to develop their skills and experience across geographical, cultural and technical boundaries. . .resulting in greater personal satisfaction of a job done well. Operational and financial targets are set high and employees are given opportunities to achieve them and rewarded for achieving targets. "

Tyrone Cowland

Regional Manager; Intertek Minerals Division, South Africa

"I have been employed by Genalysis Laboratory Services, which was acquired by Intertek, for over ten years. I started in a very junior position and was promoted through several departments and divisions. It was through the encouragement offered to me by my superiors, the extensive resources and opportunities offered by Intertek that I have managed to obtain a senior position at a relatively young age. Intertek has supported many employees including myself in reaching a very rewarding goal in my career and I look forward to the future."

Lucina German

Administrative Manager; Intertek Commodities, Mexico

"I started my career in Intertek in February 1998 in reception at our Mexico office. Soon I was given an opportunity to be a part of the team conducting equipment audit for the Code of Conduct of Disney and the team conducting Transition Audit calculation processes for GE coordinated throughout Mexico, Central and South America. I have had the opportunity to work with global clients as coordinator of projects; now I have moved to the role of an administrative manager. To work in Intertek is the best work experience of my life and I feel very proud to be part of this great organization. Intertek changed my life in all the aspects."

Monang Pasaribu

Manager; Coal, Ores & Concentrates, Intertek Minerals Division, Indonesia

"I joined Intertek after graduating with a degree in chemistry in 1995. After three years learning analytical techniques in the Jakarta laboratory as a chemist, Intertek gave me an opportunity to become a member of the commissioning team to open a mine site Lab (Newmont Nusa Tenggara) where I was able to further develop my knowledge of chemistry and management. In 2005, the Company again gave me an opportunity as manager of their new Coal Division, to establish two coal laboratories on the island of Kalimantan. I believe that Intertek is a great place to work."

    I worked at Intertek full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    20 days off a year, good benefits. Adequate pay for what you do. A lot of corporate managers and observers to watch over what you do.

    Cons

    High turnover. This leads to being constantly in an "orientation" mode. They won't train you because they don't know how Always recruiting for the job and not enough training for the job.
    There is a disproportionate number of senior managers, auditors, supervisors. etc, that do not contribute anything to the bottom line, but travel around, cost money, and generate even more work that justifies their traveling around and spending more money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of half of the non-producers, Either give them something that generates revenue or let them go..

    Doesn't Recommend
