    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Intertek full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people still there. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    New leadership came from different business line and does not understand the petroleum space. New leadership also believes in consolidating power to be held by just a few, leaving caring, competent managers less effective and less influential. The new, evolving culture is demeaning and certainly not the same as what the corporate messaging is claiming.
    Strong voluntary leavers are increasing and they are leaving much energized to join competitors and be more effective than ever.

    Advice to Management

    Read this review and reflect on it. Then start listening more to those who still (somehow) still have passion.

    Pros

    Columbus office has great people. The work is generally pretty interesting and varied,but not for everyone.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to drive revenue and profits at the expense of everything else (typical publicly traded company)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on keeping senior technical staff happy with work/life balance, and less focus on unattainable revenue growth goals. Allow the business to grow organically.
