    Current Employee - Technician I in Cortland, NY

    I have been working at Intertek Testing Services NA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working hours can be made flexible. Benefits are also quite good.

    Cons

    Way to many chiefs and not enough Indians. We have 7 layers of management in my department alone that do absolutely noting while the engineers and technicians work themselves to death.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of the people that are making you wealthy. More appreciation, less finding fault to avoid raises.

    I have been working at Intertek Testing Services NA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    vacation time, benefits, client communication, and non-management co workers

    Cons

    If you do not live in Groton or belong to the boys club there is a ceiling over your head. If you do live in Groton or belong to the club opportunities await you! No experience, skills, or backbone needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step outside Groton and look in. Well respected techs and engineers are leaving. In return, leaving you with a Smith Corona.

    I worked at Intertek Testing Services NA full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    lots of work and many hours 50-60

    Cons

    too many non degreed engineers and techs.........company is only interested in money and not integrity or professionalism
    As long as you went to high school with managers you do not need to have knowledge or skills...just be able to bill customers whether the testing was performed or not! sad but true!
