I worked at Intertek Testing Services NA full-time for more than a year

Pros

Laid 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.

Cons

Terrible 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 ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to your employees and stop showing favoritism.

    Not Good. A life lesson in self-humiliation.

    Pros

    None other than PTO. No education required -- I guess that's a perk.

    Cons

    There's not enough space to write it all. Incompetent management. Improper practices. Nepotism. Ridiculous outdated and non-integrated software tools. Bad work ethics. Inability to properly integrate acquired labs. In-fighting between labs which compete for work. Rampant turnover and layoffs undermining any attempt to do a good job. Call or email someone today and next week they might be gone. Growth at Intertek is from acquisition...and when it slows, look out....heads will roll....and odds are it will be yours, even if you weren't the cause. Worst company to work for. Leaves you with that sticky used car salesman feel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice for management. They should all be fired -- ALL of them.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Team atmosphere.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People 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.
