    Pros

    Company welfare is relatively good as compared to competitor. They offered medication welfare, dental welfare, performance bonus,13th month bonus (pro-rated if you did not complete full calendar year), transport allowance if you need to work overtime and various incentive if your entity are performed well.

    21 days annual leaves for management and executive level and 14 annual leave for non-executive level.

    The initial salary package might be a bit lower than market expectation. However, if you are request for better salary package and it is reasonable, they are still willing to give. Overall, salary package is relatively okay.

    Cons

    The softline division Intertek is extremely hard working . Please expect to work on (close to all) weekday night and (some) weekend. Employees are putting their best effort to finish all the tasks. If you are executive or above, you are still expected to work overtime on weekday and weekend without overtime pay.

    The technical knowledge of the team is lower than average. The quality system is less systematic. Making improvement requires plenty of efforts as veteran management is conservative. To work effectively in this division, you should blend into the company culture and work on what the company expects you to do with great precaution. You need to think whether the particular task is positively contributed to society before executing it.

    Employees are conservative and protective. Be mindful and be considerate when working there.

    Enjoy the challenges and work to your best is my philosophy in Intertek Softline

    Pros

    Basic salary ok and work with a great team.

    Cons

    No confidence in senior management who only care about profit for shareholders and bonuses for themselves. We cant get things needed to run the business but there is money for management jollies around the world.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your staff at all levels not just the people at the top! Perhaps they might stop leaving then.

    I worked at Intertek full-time

    Pros

    They have good benefits with starting of 20 days of vacation and additional 5 days if you make it to 5 years but most leave before then. However, this company is a great way to get your feet wet out of college because they throw you into the ocean to see if you could sink or swim. You learn about corporate america really quick and how to play its games. you have the possibility of moving up in the office because there are always people leaving or getting fired.

    Cons

    You will spend many hours working with no recognition. you constantly get belittled by the management, your project reviewer, sales people, and customers. so the only thing to do to try to please them is work longer to try to finish everything quicker. Management is never happy with the billing numbers and always pushes for more to make it seem that all they care about is revenue which shows in the quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    slow down and try to focus on the customer and Intertek employee. listen to employees and try to implement new ideas rather than getting a bigger hammer.

    Pros

    If you hit the Jug regularly enough your sure to find your 'in' with upper management.

    Cons

    Upper management is a cesspool of non-existant morals and the most stupid approach with how to make business grow. Hard work is under appreciated and the training program is non-existant. Hours outside of office are not recognized and 20+ hour shifts are not appreciated. Upper management is extremely biased and deals with issues in unprofessional manner. Not a job for people who want to do good quality work as they only ask for more. Save yourself the mental anguish and avoid this company if you are a person who wants to do things right, it's not appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your grunt workers. Try working some jobs that earn some money to appreciate what your workers go through on a day to day basis and learn what it takes to earn that bottom line.

    Pros

    There seems to be no benefit in the organization

    Cons

    There has been incident where the HR in Mumbai Intertek has been very irresponsive to unrest situations in the city. There has been such major incidents where the HR's has not communicated the details and employees has to suffer. HR's has been Out of Office in such conditions and were not responsive to any methods of communications. The safety and welfare of employees is not at all taken in concern. They follow those standards of IT companies which suits and benefit them.

    Pros

    Multinational company, great training ground, and work/life balance is somewhat ok.

    Cons

    Needs to improve on employee health and safety. The local leadership sees health and safety as cost generating and not part of base values.

    Advice to Management

    Mean it when you say you are concerned on employee well being. Action speaks louder than words.
