    Pros

    Great company that is changing the industry. As a FTSE 100 company. We have the power to move into any industry sector where we see growth opportunities and the people to make sure we are successful.

    Cons

    While the compensation is very good, Intertek has a habit of focusing on percent over quota without including weighting factors like total revenue or industry vertical as a points of recognition. Top sales people are not typically recognized by management to the organization or individual.

    Advice to Management

    Intertek is very lean on management. There are only three levels between sales and the NA President. Some employees may seek more directions and feedback. Others strive and achieve great things within a culture of entrepreneurship and self-development.

    Pros

    Great for entrepreneurial minded people who are team oriented
    Great clients to work with
    Hard work and dedication is recognized and rewarded
    Above average pay and reward system

    Cons

    There are negative people in every company, especially companies this large so navigate around them and succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to new forms of employee engagement opportunities and continue to coach employees to their passions. In such a large company our employee's dream job exists already within our structure.......make sure your helping your employees get there, in turn creating a pathway for more successful candidates. Positivity is cyclical

    Pros

    Intertek is a very large company giving employees many opportunities for growth. They encourage learning and even continuing your education. Benefits and pay were on point!

    Cons

    I have not been with Intertek long enough to really see any cracks in the system; However, the IT ticketing process can be improved to ensure timely results.

    Advice to Management

    Review the IT ticketing process.

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

    Pros

    Company is quickly acquiring small to medium businesses which makes for a challenging environment, full of opportunities. Good ideas are always heard by management. Usually work on multiple projects at a time, thus keeping things interesting. Accomplishments reflect pay. Great work environment, co-workers are fun and motivated.

    Cons

    Not the type of place for someone without initiative. Training philosophy is more 'on-the-job learning' rather than formal classroom.

    Advice to Management

    Implement more programs to promote interaction between Intertek branches.

    Pros

    The attitude of sincere teamwork, support, and the people who work here are committed and dedicated and work overtime voluntarily for free because they want to contribute to our goals.

    Cons

    Absolutely none. The way the managers in the East Gulf Coast region run their business is perfect, and employee morale is exceptionally high.

    Advice to Management

    To the East Gulf Coast managers, don't change a thing. You guys are great!

    Pros

    You are not stuck working the same thing over and over. You get to work on different projects and try new things. The company will provide training that is needed and takes great care of the employees. Also have a big group that you can reach out.

    Cons

    Sometimes you are thrown onto a project that you don't know anything about and they expect you to handle it like you've been working on it for a while. Not too bad, but does offer some challenges. Also, the timelines are sometimes too quick. You are expected to get 2 weeks of work done in 1 week.

    Advice to Management

    Just know that work done is fast, cheap and has good quality: pick two. You cannot have all three.
