I worked at Intertek full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great learning experience as far as working with worldwide safety standards. Working there builds excellent background knowledge in an area of engineering that not many people have experience in.

Cons

No support from anyone. No one takes the time to sit down and explain things to you. Not enough time is provided to adequately complete projects which causes everyone from sales to the reviewer to have to take short cuts.

Advice to Management

Concentrate a little more on "SAFETY certification testing" rather than rushing projects just to be able to "bill" at the end of the month.

    Pros

    Managed very large account with very little oversight.

    Cons

    Sales strategy changed on a weekly basis, people were treated disrespectfully, and there was no formal review process. Was given no notice and let go 4 days before xmas without any formal warning. Apparently this happens every year so the top execs. can cut cost to ensure a higher profitabiltiy so they could get their bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more inclusive and reach out to people who are different i.e. women, minorities, etc. A company with a bunch of white male engineers is an antiquated model.
