    I have been working at Intertek full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great management in our Certification team. My manager and lead were very lenient with time off and worked with my schedule when I needed to leave early. I enjoyed my colleges and found that everyone was willing to help when needed.

    Cons

    Little to no room for growth or moving up. Typical cooperate environment. They are always letting people go- so you are never sure if your job is completely secure. You have add no personal value to the company- you feel like just a number/faceless employee.

    Advice to Management

    Provide employees with good work ethic more opportunities to take on more work/roles- otherwise the quality employees will keep leaving.

    Pros

    Good training and benefits. The pay is decent and the mileage is generous. The people I work with are like a family.

    Cons

    The 24 hour on call, your life becomes the job and little to no time with family. If you are able to spend time with family it is short.
