    I worked at Intertek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    you must have a very good reason for why you want to work here - perhaps it's your first job in industry, or a right career move, perhaps you are desperate for any work.

    Cons

    constant rat race, large turnover, poor planning for the future

    Advice to Management

    show respect and appreciation for your employees. Just declaring it is not enough.

    I worked at Intertek full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    With the amount of work they expect you to do, you can be assured that you will get exposed to a variety of different things.

    Cons

    At Intertek there is no leadership. Just a bunch of people claiming to try and make a positive work culture. More time and effort is wasted talking about training and development of its employees, but little to no action is taken. Everything is on a 30-day cycle to try and hit monthly numbers. When numbers are not hit, management goes into instant freak out mode and any semblance of a strategy they may have had goes out the window. Part of the reason they struggle to hit numbers is the ridiculous amount of turnover that Intertek has. It doesn't seem to matter what part of the business you're in, it is a revolving door of talent in and talent out. Most of those who stay are people who have given up or can't make it anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror and stop lying to yourself. Stop telling yourself you care about the employees and that you are investing in them. Intertek has less than a 2.5 rating on this site and only 34% of people would recommend this company to a friend. Whatever you think you're doing to improve the company or your team, you're not. Don't just try harder, try differently. You have a good business model but your leadership didn't evolve as the business grew. Get rid of Andre (who is probably the worst thing that happened to Intertek) and actually put together a people and market strategy that you stick with. If your attrition rate is an indicator of how you're doing, it indicates you don't care.

    I worked at Intertek full-time

    Pros

    It was nice for a while, but then they fired everyone I worked with or moved them.

    Cons

    I worked with a couple of different offices where people seemed overworked and stressed out. They had very little regard for their employees except those who "played the game". They had a very insular management system with definite insiders and outsiders

    Advice to Management

    Put a bit more into retaining employees rather than trying to get as much out of them before they burned out and quit.

    Pros

    The company is flexible and has flexible working hours. Workload is reasonable and work life balance is not a problem

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive. The industry is such that, getting the higher growth is tough. Not a lot of additional compensation
