I worked at Intertek

Pros

160 hours of PTO, 9 paid holidays which works out to 30 days paid vacation, just as long as you don't try to use this on month end or popular holidays

Cons

Terrible management, especially HVAC performance. Terrible morale issues, The technicians know that they are just doing whatever they can to produce regardless of quality. Its all about month end revenue. The manufacturers hate the place, and do not like traveling to economic depressed cortland ny. If you are a new engineer out of college this might work for you because you do not know anything different yet, But to the experienced engineer this place is a joke. and more like office space. Stay away if you can help it. The pay is terrrible for what you do, and the pressure for revenue is rediculous. The petty crap that is allowed to happen there just flushes out the good employees and all that is left is the garbage and socially inept. I have never experienced anything so horrible in my proffesional life and I have been in the industry for 12 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the good ole boy managers, pay your engineers and technicians better, perhaps the turn over will not be 50 percent for engineers and technicians. This is the truth people. Nimer get rid of the old managers and put some new blood in there.
