    I have been working at Inspectorate

    Pros

    OK pay for a starting job, you'll move up quickly if you're a hard worker. Decent stepping stone position.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment, not the type of place where you'd aim to stay unless you're committed to moving up into upper management, which are all volatile positions. Toxic work mentality, i.e. you're chastised by your peers for coming to work sick, but at the same time you're chastised by the same people for calling out sick. Lab is understaffed, so overtime and weekend coverage is expected of you when needed.

    I worked at Inspectorate

    Pros

    Good pay and excellent benefits are a definite plus. Safety is a primary concern, and online training modules are required annually for all employees.

    Cons

    Low morale, unclear sense of direction. Company was acquired by Bureau Veritas, and the process of transition and realignment of business streams are resulting in layoffs and employee angst.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I worked at Inspectorate

    Pros

    Decent view looking over water to the Boston skyline. There are some pretty good restaurants located around the area. Close to the city.

    Cons

    An employee committed suicide in the office and they went along afterwards like nothing happened. Could not have a worse work environment.

    I have been working at Inspectorate

    Pros

    The work environment provides a large amount of autonomy for the employees who work in the field offices. Lots of OT, benefits are okay, and you're eligible for 401k immediately. There are opportunities for advancement, although they might not be actively disclosed.

    Cons

    The work hours can be unpredictable, and often times will exceed 70-80 hours per week. Pay is low for the work being done, and raises are not easy to come by. There is a lack of corporate involvement - except for when the corporate office calls to complain. As a field office employee, access to management is non-existent. Calls to management and executive leadership are not returned.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your employees and facilitate communication. Spend the time to understand the needs and responsibilities of the field offices so that management can make informed decisions.

    I have been working at Inspectorate full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary and vacation time were decent. Company benefits were good but costly to the employee.

    Cons

    Management on,y gets involved when there is an issue. There was no team work feel at all from anyone above the branch manager position. Was expected to be on call 24/7 but not compensated for those hours.
